SAN DIEGO -- Tim Lincecum doesnt pitch like the two-time Cy Young award winner from five years ago. [url=http://www.goldenknightsnhlshop.com/calvin-pickard-golden-knights-jersey-c-19/]Calvin Pickard Golden Knights Jersey[/url] . Hes just beginning to get similar results. The right-hander struggled after winning the honour in 2008 and 2009, but a retooling of his game has begun to pay off and has the San Francisco Giants thinking about the Lincecum of old. After throwing a no-hitter against San Diego 11 days ago, Lincecum took a shutout into the seventh inning Sunday to lead the Giants to a 5-3 win over the Padres. Lincecum (8-5) extended his scoreless streak to 23 1-3 innings before Brooks Conrad hit a solo homer in the seventh to knock him out of the game. The streak started with his second career no-hitter against San Diego on June 25. Lincecum followed that with eight scoreless innings in a 5-0 win over St. Louis on Tuesday. Although this is not the overpowering Lincecum who won the Cy Young in consecutive years, the results are impressive. "Im not going to overpower teams with my stuff," Lincecum said. "Im just going to have to mix my pitches and locations. Im doing a good job of that. Im not missing in big spots with pitches." He allowed one run on three hits, walked four and struck out six. Lincecum has won all three starts this season against San Diego and improved his mark against the Padres to 16-6 in 29 career starts. Lincecum threw his first no-hitter at San Diego on July 13, 2013. "Timmys just been on a good roll," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "How poised hes been, how easy his delivery has been." The Giants have been down this road before with Lincecum since he began struggling after his last Cy Young season and lacked the consistency that had marked the early part of his career. Bochy thinks this recent stretch may last. "Hes reinvented himself," Bochy said. "I think he has a better idea of what he wants to do as far as pitching. Hes become more of a pitcher. It was pure stuff early on in his career. Hes gotten more cerebral with the pitching side of it." Lincecum also believes he may be able to sustain his most recent success as compared to other stretches when it didnt last. "Its just a feeling I have right now," he said. "I look for consistency and this is about as consistent as I have been in the last few years. Hopefully, this is the start of something good." The Giants, who had dropped 18 of 22 games after they lost the opener Friday, won two straight to win only their second series in nearly a month. Brandon Belt drove in two runs for San Francisco and Hunter Pence had three hits, extending his season-best hitting streak to 11 games, and scored three runs. Rookie Joe Panik and Michael Morse each had an RBI. Three relievers combined with Lincecum on a four-hitter. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his third save in six chances. The Padres did not get their first hit off Lincecum until there were two outs in the fourth. Yasmani Grandal hit a two-run homer, his seventh, off former closer Sergio Romo in the eighth inning to cut the Giants lead to 5-3. Rookie Jessie Hahn (4-2) lost his four-start winning streak, allowing three runs on five hits over seven innings in his sixth major league start. The left-hander struck out five and walked two. "In the early innings, they were sitting on my curveball, so I had to make some adjustments," Hahn said. Hahn retired 11 straight batters after he allowed Morses RBI single to fall behind 3-0 in the third. "The second half of his outing was outstanding," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I was really impressed with how Jesse hung in there." Belt singled in a run in the first and had a sacrifice fly in San Franciscos two-run eighth. NOTES: Lincecums career best for scoreless innings is 29 in 2009. ... Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval, who left Saturday nights game with a left elbow bruise after he was hit while swinging at a pitch, did not play. ... The Giants 5-3 win Saturday night in 10 innings was just the clubs third victory since moving to San Francisco in 1958 in which the team won a game with a game-tying homer in the ninth inning and a game-winning home run in the 10th, according to information provided to the Giants by the Elias Sports Bureau. ... Giants RHP Ryan Vogelsong (5-5, 3.86 ERA) is scheduled to face As RHP Jesse Chavez (6-5, 3.23) in the opener of a three-game series at Oakland on Monday. ... The Padres travel to Colorado with RHP Ian Kennedy (6-9, 3.87) going against Rockies LHP Tyler Matzek (1-2, 4.25) in the opener of a three-game set.

Ashwin, 30, had a modest first Test against England by his own stellar standards - match figures of 3-230 little reward for 69.3 overs of toil on an easy-paced Rajkot surface.The 30-year-old changed his action in the second innings and, in an interview with Sky Sports, he explained that innovation is one of the secrets of a career that so far has yielded 21 five-wicket hauls. Im really hungry in terms of how much I want to achieve as a cricketer, said Ashwin, who has taken 223 Test scalps in 40 Tests. England rallied strongly in Rajkot after their Dhaka debacle so what can we expect in Vizag? Its not about any specific number; if I get on a bit of a roll, then I dont really want to settle for anything; I just want to keep going and going and going.The wicket [in Rajkot] was easy pace and I wanted to create some sort of pace into my action, so I tried to be a little slingy and load it up differently. India vs England November 17, 2016, 3:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Ive done a lot of those actions in the past so its not something that Im really worried about; I dont think about losing on anything when Im trying something because I believe that if you keep on trying, then you start getting better as a cricketer.It is a Test match but unless you do it in the middle under pressure you neverr know whats going to be beneficial for you.

Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price There have been instances in the past when I have seen a lot of cricketers try so many things in the nets but dont quite have the stomach to do it in the middle.Im the other way around. Id much rather try it in a game than in the nets because thats where you are under pressure. All great men do it when it matters rather than when it doesnt. Ashwin cuts on the fourth day of the first Test In addition to his role of talismanic spinner, Ashwin has recently added the role of number six to his duties and is thriving in the position - scoring 70 and 32 in the first Test.As far as Im concerned, I love to be in the middle of the action, he said. I am also one of those persons who likes to win games for the team, rather than being at the back door trying to pick up a couple of wickets.Personally, I have been craving to bat up the order for the last two or three years and the opportunity presented itself to me in the last three months and I think Ive taken it with both hands.To hear more from Ashwin, click on the video above for the full interview, which includes…- what its like to have Anil Kumble as coach and how the pair worked together during the first Test- the major differences between being captained at Test level by former skipper MS Dhoni and current captain Virat Kohli Test Cricket: The Verdict November 17, 2016, 3:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass - How the team responded to the draw in Rajkot and how he assesses his own performance in the drawn TestWatch continued coverage of the second Test between India and England live on Sky Sports 2 or follow over-by-over commentary, including in-play video clips of all the key moments, on our live blog across selected digital platforms.
