Giants 5, Phillies 2
SAN FRANCISCO -- Tim Lincecum was backed by four innings of overpowering shutout relief pitching, and San Francisco topped Philadelphia.
The Giants took two of three from the Phillies and recorded their first home series win since July 11-13. San Francisco also won the season series from Philadelphia, 5-2.
After the Phillies put 11 runners on base against Lincecum (10-8) in the first five innings, left-hander Javier Lopez and righties Jean Machi, Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla (10th save) combined to strike out nine while permitting only two singles and no walks over the final four innings.
