Tim Lincecum scattered four hits over six innings and had three hits and three RBIs, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 9-0 victory over the sloppy Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.

Lincecum (3-0) struck out seven and walked two. The two-time Cy Young winner has allowed just two runs over 20 innings in his first three starts. But it was at the plate where he made the biggest impression.

Lincecum got all three of his RBIs against knuckleballer Charlie Haeger before the Dodgers got their first hit against the All-Star right-hander as the Giants built an early 5-0 lead. He had only three RBIs last season in 66 at-bats.
