For now, Lincecum set as Game 4 NLCS starter


SAN FRANCISCO >> Tim Lincecum is set to start Game 4 of the NL championship series for the San Francisco Giants, as long as he’s not needed in relief for Monday night’s Game 2.

Manager Bruce Bochy says Lincecum told him he felt fine to pitch Monday night after throwing two hitless, scoreless innings in Sunday night’s 6-4 Game 1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner has pitched in relief three times this postseason. He was demoted to the bullpen after posting a 10-15 record and NL-worst 5.18 ERA in the regular season, but has found his stride so far in the playoffs.

Lincecum pitched the 2010 Game 5 World Series clincher for the Giants at Texas.
