The White Sox's sweep of the three-game series handed the Rays their first sweep of the season and their first sweep at home since April 1-3, 2011, when the Orioles beat them in the first three games of the season. Tampa Bay has lost four of its past five.

San Francisco, CA.--
As has been the case regularly this season, Tim Lincecum was a loser Wednesday night. But he didn't pitch like one.

Lincecum surrendered two runs (one earned) and four hits in seven innings, an admirable performance under any circumstance. Unfortunately for Lincecum and the Giants, one of the hits he yielded was Paul Goldschmidt's tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning that helped lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-1 triumph.
