World Series Game 5 update: Giants still lead 3-1 over Rangers after eight innings
Lincecum has held the Rangers to only three hits, including a solo home run by Nelson Cruz in the seventh inning.
In the top of the eighth inning, Texas reliever Netfali Feliz, who usually closes victories, took over for starter Cliff Lee and allowed a two-out single to Buster Posey. But Cody Ross then grounded out.
