Giants’ starter Tim Lincecum pitched a gem for San Francisco on Thursday night, allowing only two hits and a walk in nine scoreless innings. Lincecum also struck out 14 Braves’ hitters and held Atlanta hitless with runners in scoring position.
Atlanta’s starter Derek Lowe struggled through five and one-third innings, but was able to escape allowing only one San Francisco run. The Braves’ bullpen threw two and two-thirds scoreless innings but Atlanta’s offense was unable to get on the board.
San Francisco’s only run came on a two-out hit by Cody Ross to score Buster Posey in the bottom of the fourth inning.
