Recap: San Francisco vs. Philadelphia

San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Crawford drove in two runs as the San Francisco Giants grabbed a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the finale of a three-game series.

Michael Morse went 3-for-3 with two runs scored for the Giants, who have won three of their last four.

"He's getting his timing back ... he's a good hitter," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Morse.

Tim Lincecum (10-8) pitched five innings and gave up two runs on seven hits with four walks and two strikeouts to win his first game since July 11.

Cody Asche was 3-for-3 with an RBI and Ben Revere also had three hits for the Phillies, who have dropped five of six. David Buchanan (6-7) gave up three runs -- two earned -- on nine hits with a walk and four strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings.

Jimmy Rollins walked with one out in the first and scored on Chase Utley's triple, but the Giants answered in the second.

Morse and Andrew Susac singled before Crawford punched a single to right that scored Morse. Marlon Byrd tried to get Susac at third on the play, but his throw went wild and Susac scored for a 2-1 lead.

Asche drew a bases loaded walk in the third to force home a run and tie the game, but the Giants grabbed the lead back in the fourth as Susac singled home Morse for a 3-2 lead.

In the eighth, the Giants padded their lead on sacrifice flies from Crawford and pinch-hitter Joaquin Arias.

Santiago Casilla pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 10th save of the season.
