Are you tired of seeing this guy yet? Of course not, but San Francisco starting pitcher Tim Lincecum probably is.

Lincecum, starting against the Arizona Diamondbacks once again, gave up another home run to former Texas State slugger Paul Goldschmidt. In the fourth inning, Lincecum tried to beat Goldschmidt low and away, but the Woodlands native got all of the sinking fastball, putting it deep into the bleachers in right-center field.

Goldschmidt now has six home runs for Arizona to go along with 16 runs batted in. He went 2-for-4 last night with the home run, a single, two runs scored and those RBI, raising his average to .258.

The Diamondbacks are now 19 games over .500, with a record of 79-60.
