SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- Tim Lincecum allowed a lone hit over eight innings Thursday and won for the first time in almost a month while lifting San Francisco over Milwaukee 4-1.

The teams split their four-game series.

Lincecum (6-11) allowed a leadoff double to Juan Francisco in the third and walked Jeff Bianchi with one out in the sixth. No one else reached base off the two-time Cy Young Award winner, who struck out eight.

His previous victory had come on July 13 in a 9-0 blanking of San Diego.

Brandon Belt gave Lincecum the early lead with a three-run homer in the first. Brandon Crawford drove in the other San Francisco run with a single in the second.

The Brewers scored their run in the ninth off Sandy Rosario.

The loss went to Donovan Hand (0-4), who allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings.
