Cubs starter Travis Wood also socked a solo homer as Chicago got its first series sweep in San Francisco since September 1993.

Wood (7-7) surrendered just one unearned run on four hits over seven innings, overcoming four walks while striking out seven.

Pedro Strop threw a scoreless eighth and Kevin Gregg wrapped up the victory with his 22nd save.

Lincecum (5-11) struck out 10 but allowed two runs on four hits over seven full frames.

Pablo Sandoval produced the only RBI for San Francisco, which dropped a fourth straight overall.
