The Giants' 5-2 victory against the Phillies on Sunday was the team's second consecutive at AT&T Park, where they hadn't won back-to-back games since a five-game home win streak May 27-June 8.

Since a slew of brilliant starts toward the beginning of July, Tim Lincecum hasn't had his vintage touch. With the Giants a half-game ahead of the Pirates for the second NL Wild Card spot, Sunday afternoon at AT&T Park would be a perfect time for him to get it back.
