Pitching duel ends with dramatic beheading

Ubaldo Jimenez of the Colorado Rockies and Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants engaged in an epic pitching duel on Sunday, with Jimenez coming out on top with a four-hit shutout to win 4-0. He then chopped off Lincecum's head, per the guidelines spelled out at the beginning of the duel. "You have bested me," Lincecum said moments before Jimenez's blade came down. "You are an honorable foe." Jimenez said he was very pleased to win the duel. "Tim is a great pitcher and it's big to get a win in the division. Also, after I chopped off his head, it was fun to hold up in the air by his long girl hair. I thought that was a nice effect."
