The roster is highlighted by eight U.S. Inline National Team veterans, including C.J. Yoder (Colorado Springs, Colo.), who will be representing the U.S. for the seventh time (2001, 2004, 2007, 2009-11).

Miami, FL.--
Tim Lincecum outran his season-long issues before they finally caught up with him in Friday night's sixth inning, when the Marlins scored five runs en route to a 7-6 victory over the Giants.

Lincecum was doomed by big innings in most of his previous nine starts, allowing three runs or more in an inning six times. For five innings against the Marlins, however, Lincecum was resolute, yielding just two hits while nursing a 3-1 lead.
