MILWAUKEE -- Tim Lincecum's career revival took a bit of a detour in Monday's 8-4 Giants victory over the Brewers, but San Francisco is going so well that Lincecum was not only taken off the hook, he became the winning pitcher.
The Giants have won 12 of their last 17, including an eight-game winning streak that ended with a loss on Saturday night. But their situation did not look all that promising on Memorial Day when Lincecum departed the game after five innings, with San Francisco trailing Milwaukee, 4-1.
