MIAMI (CBS / AP) — Tim Lincecum allowed two hits in seven scoreless innings and Jeff Keppinger provided a first-inning solo home run to lead the San Francisco Giants past the Florida Marlins 3-0 on Saturday night.
Lincecum (11-9) walked three, struck out 10 and hit a batter while lowering his league-leading road ERA to 2.08. He has given up one run or less in six of his last seven starts overall.
Jeremy Affeldt pitched a 1-2-3 eighth and Brian Wilson a scoreless ninth for his 35th save in 39 tries.
Javier Vazquez (7-10) surrendered three runs and five hits in seven innings. He struck out 10 and threw two wild pitches. It was his eighth quality start in his last 11 outings.
Keppinger’s first inning shot extended San Francisco’s major league record of consecutive solo home runs to 21.
