MLB: San Francisco 2, San Diego 0

April 21, 2013 at 12:34 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, April 21 (UPI) -- Tim Lincecum hurled 6 2/3 scoreless innings and Pablo Sandoval bashed a two-run homer Saturday in the San Francisco Giants' 2-0 verdict over San Diego.

Lincecum (2-0) controlled the Padres on four hits, walking two and striking out eight for the Giants, who won a second straight at home after enduring a three-game sweep in Milwaukee.

Jose Mijares and Santiago Casilla combined for 1 1/3 shutout relief innings and Sergio Romo tossed a perfect ninth for his eighth save, securing the victory.

Sandoval provided the game's only offense with a two-run blast in the fourth.

San Diego's Andrew Cashner (0-1) absorbed loss while making an emergency start after scheduled pitcher Clayton Richard came down with flu-like symptoms.

The right-hander yielded just Sandoval's homer in four innings, walking one and fanning five.
