Giants SP Tim Lincecum throws eight shutout innings for win on Sunday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Giants starter Tim Lincecum (2-2) went eight strong innings on Sunday, scattering three hits while not allowing a run in the Giants' victory over the Angels.|
All three hits off Lincecum were singles.
With the performance, Lincecum lowered his ERA from 3.27 to 2.40.
"I just tried to execute with the pitches from my gameplan," Lincecum said. "I knew they know I throw a lot of offspeed, so I tried to pick my spots to throw the fastball."
Lincecum also collected two singles at the plate.
"He really had a good rhythm, good pace today and set the tone," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Just a terrific job. His fastball command really can determine how his game goes."
Lincecum's next start is scheduled for Friday against the Marlins.
Giants SP Tim Lincecum struggles in Monday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum failed to pitch past the fourth inning in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.
Lincecum allowed four runs on eight hits over four innings to earn the loss. He struck out two batters and walked three.
"I was missing in the middle of the plate too much," Lincecum said after the game, per MLB.com.
Lincecum (1-2) ran into trouble during the third inning, when all four runs against him were scored. Lincecum surrendered five hits and one walk during the inning. He retired the side in the fourth inning, but was pulled after that.
His next projected start is Sunday against the Angels.

Makeup details for Sunday's postponement have yet to be announced.
Giants' Tim Lincecum picks up first win of the season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum put together a quality start to pick up his first win of the season Tuesday night against the Dodgers.
Lincecum (1-1) allowed a run-scoring double to Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning for his only blemish of the evening. He surrendered one run on five hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings of a 6-2 victory. Of his 85 pitches, 46 were strikes.
After tossing even scoreless frames in his first start of the season, Lincecum has allowed four earned runs over his last two starts (11 innings). He will look for win No. 2 against the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday. He is 2-1 with a 7.45 ERA over his last four starts in Colorado.
Rockies' Arenado seems to have Giants SP Lincecum's number
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado gave his team an early 3-0 lead Wednesday at San Francisco with a three-run homer off Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum in the first inning. Lincecum got ahead of Arenado, 0-2, before Arenado golfed a 79-mph changeup into the left-center field seats.
"I just wanted to make sure I stayed on the ball, think middle, before I pulled off it," said Arenado, who is celebrating his 24th birthday Thursday, per MLB.com. "Luckily enough, I got a pitch to hit and put a swing on it."
Arenado has had plenty of success against Lincecum in his career, and it extends to spring training as well. Arenado hit a three-run homer off Lincecum in a March 31 spring game. In the regular season, Arenado is batting .417 (5 for 12) with one double, one home run and three RBI in his career against the right-hander.
"He [Arenado] is their guy," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's a nice player. He's maybe the best defensive third baseman in the game and the guy hits in the heart of the order."

|2014 Summary: No matter how erratic Tim Lincecum has been since his string of dominant seasons, Fantasy owners have been able to say "at least there are the strikeouts." In recent years, even that hasn't been enough to make Lincecum worth trusting in mixed leagues, but for the first time in his career, Lincecum isn't even a strikeout pitcher anymore. His 7.7 K/9 ratio was not far above the 7.3 K/9 that was the average for major league starters. A 4.67 ERA as a starter earned Lincecum an assignment in middle relief, barely more than two months after no-hitting the Padres.|
Playing time status: Even if Jake Peavy and Ryan Vogelsong leave as free agents, there may not be room for Lincecum to return to the Giants' rotation. It's not yet clear if he will serve as a starter, reliever or swingman.
2015 Outlook: Even if we could be assured that Lincecum would be in the rotation all season long, he cannot be relied upon to deliver stats that are usable outside of NL-only leagues.
