KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum missed the pregame introductions before the World Series opener because he was vomiting.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner did not line up with his teammates on the third-base side of the field at Kauffman Stadium before the Giants' 7-1 win Tuesday night.
"My trainer, Dave Groeschner, he said he got sick about a half hour before the game and he was throwing up," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday. "He rebounded very well. He was OK to pitch."
