SAN DIEGO (AP) - Tim Lincecum took a shutout into the seventh inning against the San Diego Padres, the team he no-hit 11 days ago, to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 5-3 victory Sunday.
Lincecum (8-5) extended his scoreless streak to 23 1-3 innings before Brooks Conrad hit a solo homer in the seventh to knock him out of the game.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner allowed one run on three hits, walked four and struck out six. Lincecum has won all three starts this season against San Diego and improved his mark to 16-6 in 29 career starts.
The Giants won two straight to win only their second series in nearly a month.
Brandon Belt drove in two runs for San Francisco and Hunter Pence had three hits.
Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his third save in six chances.
