Colvin, recalled Saturday from Triple-A Fresno, snapped a 1-1
tie with a two-run triple down the right-field line in the
seventh. Lincecum (3-2) allowed one run on two hits in 7 2/3
innings and Sergio Romo earned his 13th save as San Francisco
won for the 14th time in its past 18 contests.
B.J. Upton homered and doubled for the Braves, but his steal of
third base with one out in the seventh was overturned by instant
replay. Gavin Floyd (0-2) went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four runs
(three earned) on seven hits with no walks and eight strikeouts,
and Freddie Freeman added a solo homer in the ninth.
Colvin blasted a Floyd offering into McCovey Cove with two outs
in the second to put San Francisco ahead 1-0. Lincecum did not
allow a hit until Upton lined a breaking ball into the front row
of the left-field stands with one out in the fifth to even the
score at one, and he didnít surrender another hit until Uptonís
double to left-center with one out in the seventh.
Upton stole third on the next pitch and initially was ruled
safe, but video review ruled Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval
tagged Uptonís foot just before he reached the base. After a
single and an error on Freeman put runners on first and second
in the home half of the seventh, Colvinís liner into the
right-field corner plated two runs and put San Francisco ahead
GAME NOTEBOOK: Lincecum recorded double-digit strikeouts for the
36th time in his career. Ö San Francisco CF Angel Pagan finished
