GAME OF THE DAY

Arizona defeats Giants, Lincecum

September 19, 2008|From the Associated Press

PHOENIX -- Adam Dunn's two-out single in the eighth inning drove in the deciding run and gave the Arizona Diamondbacks a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night. It was Tim Lincecum's first loss in two months.

Conor Jackson singled with two out and stole second to set up Dunn's winning hit as the Diamondbacks swept four games from the Giants to stay 3 1/2 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West with 10 to play.

Lincecum (17-4) was 6-0 in 10 starts since losing to Milwaukee, 7-4, on July 20. He gave up three runs and six hits in his second straight complete game and second of his career.

The 24-year-old right-hander struck out six and hit a batter in his first loss in his six appearances against Arizona.

The Diamondbacks blew a lead for Randy Johnson for the fifth time this season, again depriving the 44-year-old of his 295th victory.
