Brandon Belt drove in all the Giants’ runs today as that total fell shy by one. Tim Lincecum permitted 4 earned runs in 4 complete innings of pitching as his ERA rose to 5.55. He allowed 8 hits, permitted 2 walks, and struck out 2.
The Giants, after winning 6 in a row, lost the final 2 in Pittsburgh and lost the series, 2-1. Their record thus far in this 10-game road trip is 4-2 before they face the Dodgers for 4 games in Chavez Ravine beginning Thursday evening. The Dodgers trail the Giants by 2.5 going into that series. Ryan Vogelsong will match up against Josh Beckett in the opener.
