Tim Lincecum pitched four solid innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Monday.
Lincecum yielded an unearned run and an infield single. The ace right-hander was knocked around for five runs and seven hits in his previous outing.
Jarrod Dyson's single off Lincecum's left foot in the fourth was the only hit he allowed.
Royals prospects Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas left in the fifth inning with injuries.
Hosmer hurt his right shoulder when he landed awkwardly diving for a ground ball in the fifth. He was checked out by the team doctor and could be able to play Tuesday.
Moustakas had a bruised right knee after he was hit by a Santiago Casilla pitch in the bottom half. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
