Lincecum entered Tuesday's game in the 14th inning to collect his first career save against the Phillies.
With Matt Cain (elbow) landing on the DL this week, long man Yusmiero Petit was asked to start Tuesday, leaving the Giants' bullpen depleted in a 14-inning showdown with the Phillies. Lincecum had extra rest over the All-Star break, so manager Bruce Bochy felt comfortable bringing him in to close out the game. The 30-year-old righty is still on track to start Friday against the Dodgers.
