Tim Lincecum tossed 8-innings of 1-hit ball, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. The win gave the Giants a split of the 4-game series.
Lincecum’s only blemish came on Juan Francisco’s 3rd inning leadoff double. The only other Brewer to reach base was Jeff Bianchi, who walked in the 6th.
Brandon Belt clubbed a 3-run home run in the 1st inning off the Brewers starter and loser Donovan Hand. Hand has now given up six home runs in his last three starts.
Lincecum struck out eight and walked one in the victory.
The Brewers scored their only run in the 9th when Jean Segura singled home Khris Davis, who doubled to lead off the inning.
The Brewers now head to Seattle to face the Mariners tonight. Kyle Lohse (7-7, 3.23) pitches for Milwaukee. Joe Saunders (10-10, 4.58) goes for Seattle.
Infielder Scooter Gennett will rejoin the Brewers in Seattle tonight. He’s been recalled from Triple A – Nashville after the Brewers placed Rickie Weeks on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury.
