Giants win on Bowker's three-run shot
Rookie's homer in eighth takes Lincecum off hook for loss
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants need to take Monday night's 8-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers and bottle it, like folks do with all those crushed and fermented grapes a few miles up north in Napa.San Francisco's first Interleague triumph in seven tries this season reminded the team that it can indeed win and generate offense at AT&T Park, which has been an unfriendly home. The Giants turned what was billed as a pitchers' duel between Tim Lincecum and Justin Verlander into a veritable slugfest, scoring five eighth-inning runs on John Bowker's three-run homer and Fred Lewis' two-run double to erase a 4-3 deficit and end their three-game losing streak.
