Sunday, August 17, 2008. (AP) -- Tim Lincecum pitched 7 2/3 strong innings, and closer Brian Wilson got San Francisco out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth, helping the Giants to a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Showing no bad effects from the bruised knee that forced him to leave his last start, Lincecum (13-3) allowed three hits, one run and four walks while striking out 10 -- five with runners in scoring position.

Travis Ishikawa's first career homer, a two-run shot in the second, opened the scoring. San Francisco led 3-0 in the fifth when Randy Winn tripled and scored on Emmanuel Burriss' RBI single.

Rookie Charlie Morton (3-7) remained winless in seven starts at Turner Field after giving up seven hits, three runs, two walks and six strikeouts in his first career appearance against the Giants.

The Braves have lost five of six.
