Giants' Lincecum dominates Cardinals with 2-hitter

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Tim Lincecum threw a two-hitter for his third complete game of the season, and Travis Ishikawa homered in the San Francisco Giants' 10-0 rout of the slumping St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.

Lincecum (8-2) tied with teammate Matt Cain for the league lead in complete games and his 2.37 ERA is second in the NL after mastering the punchless Cardinals with his third career shutout and fifth career complete game. He needed only 95 pitches to match his career low complete game and finished off the Cardinals in a snappy 2 hours, 6 minutes.

Juan Uribe added a homer in the eighth for the Giants.

Brad Thompson (2-4) took the loss for the Cardinals, who have lost 5 of 6 while scoring three or fewer runs in all of the setbacks.
