CHICAGO (CBS/AP) — Tim Lincecum pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning and Xavier Nady had a three-run double in his first game with the San Francisco Giants, who beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday.
Lincecum (8-14) allowed two runs on David DeJesus’ seventh homer and struck out seven over 6 1-3 innings in a solid effort on a breezy day at Wrigley Field.
Nady, promoted from Triple-A Fresno when major league rosters expanded Saturday, hit a bases-loaded smash past third and into the left-field corner to give NL West-leading San Francisco a 4-0 lead in the first.
