Giants still lead Reds 8-3 after 8 innings

Tim Lincecum just keeps on pitching.

Lincecum entered Game 4 with two outs in the fourth inning. Since then, he's pitched 4⅓ innings, allowing just one run while striking out six Cincinnati Reds. Lincecum had retired seven straight Cincinnati Reds before Dioner Navarro dropped a broken-bat bloop single into center field.

But the Giants' right-hander got Drew Stubbs on a little broken-bat "liner" (for lack of a better word) and he struck out pinch-hitter Chris Heisey to end the inning.

There was a moment of light comedy in there, though, when Lincecum threw a pickoff throw to first base even though the closest uniformed person to the base was first-base coach Billy Hatcher. Lincecum got the error as Navarro moved to second base, but of course that was moot.

After eight innings, it's still Giants 8, Reds 3.
