Giants Vs. Nationals: Tim Lincecum Looks To Keep It Rolling Against Washington

After finally putting an end to the longest losing streak of his career, San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum looks to earn himself another W in the opener against the Washington Nationals.

Lincecum dropped six straight decisions over a 10-start span, but allowed just four hits and two walks while striking out eight in a shutout of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Lincecum is just 1-4 with 7.59 ERA in eight road starts this season and 1-2 with a 4.14 ERA in six career meetings with the Nationals.

The Nats will send out Jordan Zimmermann, who threw seven innings of one-run ball in his last outing against Colorado. He is still trying to figure it out at home though as he is 0-3 with a 3.25 ERA in seven outings at Nationals Park this year. He is 2-1 with a 3.60 ERA in four starts lifetime against the Giants.

First pitch is set for 3:35 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
