Giants 2, Phillies 0

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tim Lincecum won his 12th game blanking the Phillies for eight innings and San Francisco beat Philadelphia.

Lincecum struck out eight and leads the majors with 191. On Monday, he struck out 15 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Brian Wilson pitched the ninth for his 27th save in 31 opportunities and gave the Giants a major league-leading 14th shutout.

The Giants improved to 36-16 (.692) at home which is the best home record in the majors.

Joe Blanton suffered his first defeat in his last five outings as the N.L. East leading Phillies lost for only the 18th time on the road this season.
Mets 9, Diamondbacks 6

NEW YORK (AP) — Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking grand slam in the eighth inning and the Mets beat Arizona.

Pagan’s first home run, off Clay Zavada (2-3), in two injury-plagued seasons with the Mets gave him a career-high five RBIs. Brian Schneider hit an early RBI double and New York got strong relief work from winner Pedro Feliciano (4-3).

Justin Upton and Mark Reynolds hit long home runs for the Diamondbacks in a matchup of fourth-place teams who expected much more this season.
