Lincecum Helps Giants Beat A’s 7-2

SCOTTSDALE Ariz. (CBS/AP) — Tim Lincecum pitched six effective innings, Pablo Sandoval homered and the San Francisco Giants beat the Oakland Athletics 7-2 in a split-squad game on Saturday.

Ryan Theriot and Angel Pagan also connected for San Francisco.

Lincecum allowed five extra-base hits and six overall, but limited the A’s to just one run. The ace right-hander struck out four and walked none in the longest outing by a Giants starter so far this spring.

Oakland took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on back-to-back doubles by Daric Barton and Derek Norris, but the Giants scored four in the fourth, two on a drive by Theriot.
