MIAMI (AP) - NL hits leader Casey McGehee homered for the second time this season, and the Miami Marlins took the lead for good on a wild pitch by Tim Lincecum in the seventh inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Sunday.
Miami stopped a six-game losing streak and averted a three-game series sweep.
McGehee came in with 118 hits and 54 RBIs, and the two-run homer in the first inning was his first since May 10. Lincecum (9-6) allowed three runs in seven innings, ending his streak of wins in four consecutive starts.
Brad Hand (1-2) gave the Marlins' shaky rotation a welcome boost by pitching seven innings to match a career high, and he allowed two runs. He had been 1-12 previously as a starter, with the lone victory in 2011.
