Sports Night: Lincecum stellar in Giants’ loss to Padres

S.F. offense can’t back Lincecum

Giants starter Tim Lincecum throws seven strong shutout innings, allowing just four hits and striking out five, but the Padres’ Brandon Morrow is equally effective, shutting out the Giants on four hits in seven innings in a 1-0 San Diego victory.

A’s unload on Mariners

Like an old-school Top-40 radio station, the hits just kept coming for Oakland in its 12-0 win over the Mariners. The A’s, who had 16 hits, scored three runs in the first, two in the second and six in the fourth to back Drew Pomeranz’s seven shutout innings.

Westbrook is latest to expose Kings’ backcourt
