SAN FRANCISCO — Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the eighth inning to give San Francisco a win in what might have been Tim Lincecum's final outing with the club, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Thursday night.

Pagan's fifth home run in an injury-shortened season was surrendered by losing pitcher Paco Rodriguez (3-3) and plunked off the top of an ambulance parked just beyond the fence in left field.

Lincecum struck out Yasiel Puig three times among his six Ks but missed a win against the NL West champion Dodgers. Santiago Casilla (7-2) earned the victory with a 1-2-3 eighth, while Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 38th save.

Lincecum is wrapping up a $40.5 million, two-year contract that paid him $22 million this season. The 29-year-old right-hander allowed two runs and three hits in seven impressive innings.

The NL Cy Young award winner in 2008 and '09 and four-time All-Star was drafted 10th overall by the Giants in 2006.
