by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum struggled in his start of the season Wednesday,  a 7-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Lincecum was hit hard in just four innings of work, as the Diamondbacks tagged him for seven runs on seven hits. He allowed a three-run home run to Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning to open the outing, and then closed it with a two-run homer by Gerardo Parra in the fourth.

Lincecum was charged with seven runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out five in four innings of work. He has now given up four home runs in 10 innings to open the year, leading to 11 earned runs in 10 innings. He enters his next start, Tuesday against the Dodgers, with a 0-1 record and 9.90 ERA. 


Tim Lincecum hurt by homers in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lincecum surrendered four runs on two pitches, as he gave up a first-inning home run to Paul Goldschmidt and then another to Mark Trumbo in the second, both for two runs. He was solid otherwise, ending up charged with four runs on eight hits in six innings, while striking out seven hitters and throwing 71 of 98 pitches for strikes.

Lincecum is three years removed from his Cy Young-caliber days, as he posted a 4.37 ERA in 32 starts a year ago. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Tim Lincecum serves up three homers vs. Royals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"Today certainly inflated (the ERA) but I really liked, for the most part, where he was with his pitches," Bochy said, per the Mercury News. "He has kept the ball down and commanded the fastball. Usually in the spring, that's what he battles. For the most part he has been pretty good with his command. Today he was just off."

Tim Lincecum soaking in words of wisdom from Tim Hudson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2014) Conversations with veteran teammate Tim Hudson has convinced struggling Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum that he needs to keep the ball low and pitch more to contact.

Lincecum has gone through a surprising career slump after four sensational seasons, though he did rebound from a miserable 2012 with a more respectable season in which he had a 10-14 record with a 4.37 ERA. But his WHIP has soared, leading him to believe he needs to change his approach. His talks with Hudson have centered on a need to keep the ball down.

"When I take a look back at years where I've scuffled ... I look at guys like (Hudson) who have had success even in later years and look at how they did that," Lincecum explained to the San Jose Mercury News. "He was just more about sticking to the bottom of the zone and relying on movement, taking away the stress of 'can I get guys out up in the zone and is my stuff going to be there.' I've been more awry than not the last couple of years."

Lincecum is listed as third in the rotation in the Giants depth chart heading into the 2014 season.

Tim Lincecum will study hitters this season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lincecum said he was initially opposed to the idea. "It was one of those things I didn't want to admit that I needed," he said. Lincecum has dealt with a reduced fastball the past two seasons, and hasn't been able to get back to Cy Young form. By studying hitters, he can hopefully become more effective despite dimished stuff. Lincecum said he also plans to speak with new Giants pitcher Tim Hudson on how to throw a more effective sinker.
