Giants Top Astros on Opening Day

It was not easy in the end, but the Giants could breathe a sigh of relief as they did not let their 5-0 lead in the ninth inning slip away completely. Tim Lincecum cruised for the first seven innings, allowing only four hits and striking out seven. He did not walk one batter in the…
