Giants' Tim Lincecum picks up first win of the season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) 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
(4/16/2015) 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."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Lincecum is expected to pitch against the Dodgers on April 21.
