Final Score: San Francisco 4, Milwaukee 1
San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Tim Lincecum yielded one hit across eight
stellar innings and Brandon Belt provided an early three-run homer, as San
Francisco downed Milwaukee, 4-1, to gain a split in this four-game set.
Lincecum's (6-11) lone blemishes were a leadoff double from Juan Francisco in
the third and a one-out walk to Jeff Bianchi in the fifth. He finished with
eight strikeouts to record his first win since tossing a no-hitter in San
Diego on July 13.
"I'm just trying to stay within myself. I know I'm not blowing anyone away
with a 95 m.p.h fastball anymore. I have to use what I have and get the outs,"
Marco Scutaro totaled three hits and scored twice for the Giants, who had lost
four of their last five prior to Thursday's series finale. Brandon Crawford
also hit safely three times and added an RBI single.
Donovan Hand (0-4) was tagged in defeat for seven hits and four runs, fanning
four and walking as many in just five frames for the Brewers, who have dropped
five of their last eight.
Jean Segura drove in Milwaukee's lone run in the ninth.
After Lincecum departed, three Giants relievers combined to make things
interesting in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Khris Davis doubled off Sandy Rosario,
Javier Lopez induced a groundout from Norichika Aoki, then Sergio Romo allowed
the RBI single to Segura, before setting down the next two batters to lock up
The Giants struck first, on Belt's three-run blast in the opening frame.
Scutaro kicked off the frame with a single and Crawford was also aboard thanks
to a double.
It was 4-0 in the second as Scutaro doubled with two down, moved up on a wild
pitch and scored on a Crawford base hit.
"You could see it from the first pitch. We hit one ball hard against him all
day," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "We had a great game on Wednesday
and we come back in here talking about another win. But it always seems like
there's something that comes up."
Despite the win, the Giants are just 8-12 since the All-Star break and have
gone just 28-48 since May 14, one of the worst records in the majors since
