Lincecum makes second career start as Giants face Rockies

May 11, 2007 - 2:58 PM San Francisco (17-17) at Colorado (15-20) 9:05 pm EDT

DENVER (Ticker) -- Tim Lincecum did not fare well in his major league debut. But the San Francisco Giants will turn to the highly-touted hurler to end their three-game losing streak.

The Giants' top prospect, Lincecum (0-0, 10.38) was selected 10th overall in the 2006 draft and started this season in the minors. However, upon his promotion, the rookie righthander gave up five runs and five hits, walking five and striking out five, in 4 1/3 innings in an 8-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies last Sunday.

But struggling through a start was a new phenomenon for Lincecum, who allowed just one run on a sacrifice fly and struck out 46 batters over five starts on his way to recording a 4-0 record and 0.29 ERA in 31 innings at Class AAA Fresno before being called up.

San Francisco will look for a stellar performance from the young hurler to help it avoid matching a season-high four-game losing streak - set from April 6-9.

He will be opposed by Josh Fogg (1-3, 5.67), who looks to avoid his third straight loss. The righthander allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out four and walking five in a 9-3 loss at the Cincinnati Reds last Sunday.

The Rockies have won four of their last seven games, including a 5-3 victory over San Francisco on Thursday. Aaron Cook tossed six solid innings and rookie Troy Tulowitzki delivered a key two-run double in the third inning.
