SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Lincecum won for the first time in nearly two months to end the worst drought of his career, throwing four-hit ball over seven innings and the San Francisco Giants held the Dodgers scoreless for the third straight game in a 3-0 win Wednesday.
Angel Pagan added an RBI single and drew a bases-loaded walk to back Lincecum (3-8) as the Giants moved into a first-place tie in the NL West with just their second sweep of the season — and the first time in franchise history shutting out the Dodgers in a three-game series spanning 123 seasons.
