ATLANTA (AP) - Michael Morse and Angel Pagan homered, Tim Lincecum allowed one run over six innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 on Friday night.

San Francisco spoiled the season debut of Braves starter Mike Minor with its seventh victory in eight games.

Atlanta has a season-high four-game losing streak.

After missing the first month of the season with left shoulder tendinitis, Minor (0-1) allowed seven hits, two runs, no walks and struck out four.

He trailed 1-0 when Pagan led off the game with his third homer and was down 2-1 in the sixth after Morse added his seventh homer.

Lincecum (2-1) gave up six hits and three walks with four strikeouts and kept Braves hitters off balance by keeping his pitches low in the strike zone and added a sharp curve ball and slider.
