Cubs Beat Giants, Lincecum
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Starlin Castro drove in three runs, Kosuke Fukudome homered and the Chicago Cubs battered San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum in an 8-6 win over the Giants on Tuesday night.

Ryan Dempster pitched into the seventh inning for his second straight win while Aramis Ramirez added three hits for Chicago, which ended a season-high six-game losing streak on the road. It's only the Cubs' third win in their last 15 games.

Lincecum, the two-time reigning NL Cy Young winner, lasted just four innings and gave up six runs, including Fukudome's two-run homer in the first. Over his last five starts San Francisco's ace is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA.
