Colorado Rockies (6-2) at San Francisco Giants (3-6), 10:15 p.m. (ET)

( – Tim Lincecum did everything right in his season debut
except get the win.

The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner tries to follow up his
brilliant effort on Wednesday when the San Francisco Giants close out a three-
game series versus the Colorado Rockies at AT&T Park.

Lincecum scattered four hits and struck out five over seven scoreless innings
on Friday in San Diego, but did not factor in the decision of his team’s 1-0

“I got some fastballs by guys that set up my off-speed pitches,” Lincecum
said. “… I don’t think I leaned on any one pitch more than the other.”

Lincecum has traditionally been a quick starter, as the Freak now owns a 17-9
record with a 3.18 ERA in March/April games.

Colorado, meanwhile, will counter with lefty Tyler Matzek, who struggled with
his control his first time out. Matzek only gave up a run in four innings, but
walked three batters and hit two more. He was removed with two on and no outs
in the fifth and did not get a decision in his team’s 5-1 win.

Colorado’s early season roll continued on Tuesday, as Corey Dickerson finished
with three hits, three runs scored and an RBI to power the Rockies past the
Giants, 4-1.

DJ LeMahieu and Wilin Rosario each drove in a run for the Rockies, who have
started a season 5-0 on the road for the first time in franchise history.

Colorado starter Christian Bergman struck out four over four scoreless innings
and Scott Oberg (1-0) tossed a scoreless fifth inning to earn the win in his
major league debut.

Angel Pagan supplied three hits and a run, while Matt Duffy drove in the
Giants’ lone run in the team’s fifth straight loss. Tim Hudson (0-1) received
no help from his offense after giving up three runs on eight hits with four
strikeouts over seven innings.

“We have to find a way to get these guys to relax,” San Francisco manager
Bruce Bochy said. “It’s frustrating because we are getting some good

Colorado was 10-9 versus the Giants last season.

No. 42 during that day’s games, including the Civil Rights Game at Dodger
