PHILADELPHIA — Pedro Martinez tossed seven impressive innings to outpitch Tim Lincecum, Ryan Howard doubled in the tiebreaking run and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants, 2-1, on Thursday.

Martinez (3-0) struck out a season-high nine in his fifth start since signing with the Phillies during the All-Star break, giving up one run and five hits.

Lincecum (13-5) was the tough-luck loser for the Giants, who have scored the second-fewest runs in the NL. Lincecum struck out 11 in seven innings, giving up two runs and four hits. It was the seventh time this season he gave up two earned runs or fewer and didn't get a win.
