"It's not that Cy Young stuff"

Cubs manager Dale Sveum is recapping the Giants 5-2 win and credited Lincecum with figuring out how to use his offspeed pitches.

Huge win for the Gmen as Tim strikes out 7, showing that he's a viable member of the rotation going into the stretch drive.

Of course, it helps to take the mound with a 4-run lead in the first. In the same situation in Houston three days ago, Zito could not get out of the third inning. Tim gave up a 2-run homer in the third but closed down the Cubbies into the 7th and the pen shut them out the rest of the way
