HOUSTON -- Lance Berkman hit a grand slam in an eight-run seventh inning after San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum left the game with an injured knee and the Houston Astros won their sixth straight game, beating the Giants 12-4 on Tuesday night.
Lincecum allowed one hit and struck out seven before he was hit
in the right knee by Brad Ausmus' line drive in the fifth. The
Giants' ace limped off the field and went for X-rays.
The Astros hammered four San Francisco relievers to blow open
what had been a tight pitching duel between Lincecum and Astros ace
Roy Oswalt (10-8).
