October 27, 2010 |  7:34 pm

San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum has joined Cliff Lee on the bench in Game 1 of the World Series after  giving up two runs in the sixth inning as the Giants saw their lead narrow to 8-4 heading into the seventh inning.

Bengie Molina drove in the Rangers' third run of the night on a double to the left field corner, and David Murphy sent home another when he singled to right field. Santiago Casilla is now pitching for the Giants.

Lincecum allowed eight hits and four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings.

Rangers reliever Alexi Ogando retired the Giants in order, striking out Buster Posey and Pat Burrell to end the inning.
