SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Tim Lincecum held the Diamondbacks to two runs and two hits Thursday in a 7-3 San Francisco Giants win over Arizona and a three-game sweep.

Lincecum (15-7) walked two batters and struck out seven.

He increased his strikeout total to 261, six short of Christy Mathewson's 1903 franchise record.

Andres Torres led San Francisco with three hits -- one a solo fifth-inning homer -- and two RBI.

Pablo Sandoval had two hits and one RBI.

Ryan Rohlinger and Bengie Molina hit RBI doubles.

Rich Aurilia had one RBI.

A run scored on Justin Upton's fourth-inning throwing error, while Randy Winn and Eugenio Velez added to hits each for the Giants, who have won four straight to keep their slim National League wild-card hopes alive.

Upton's two-run ninth-inning single led Arizona.

Stephen Drew hit an RBI single for the Diamondbacks, who have lost five of seven.

The losing pitcher was starter Dan Haren (14-10).
