Tim Lincecum is a Filipino

Pilipino American Tim Lincecum allowed just three hits over eight innings to help the Giants take the trophy home to San Francisco for the first time.

Balleriano’s father Genaro was born somewhere in Mindanao and mother Albert Alcoy in Cebu. Philomena’s father Leoncio was born in Batangas and mother Anastasia Dominguez in Siquijor.
