|Lincecum Helps Giants Beat Cubs Saturday
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Justin Germano's shaky first inning put the Cubs behind right away and with San Francisco's Tim Lincecum pitching, it meant another loss for Chicago in this dismal season.
Germano retired the first two batters of the game before giving up singles to Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey, walking Hunter Pence and hitting Hector Sanchez with a pitch to force in the first run.
Xavier Nady, who was once Germano's minor league roommate, then hit a hard shot past third for a three-run double and the Giants had four quick runs on their way to a 5-2 victory.
