SAN DIEGO (AP) - Buster Posey hit a two-run home run and Tim Lincecum (LINZ'-ih-kuhm) earned his first victory of the season for the San Francisco Giants, who had only three hits yesterday in beating San Diego 4-3 yesterday.

DENVER (AP) - Jimmy Rollins homered early, then hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning that sent the Philadelphia Phillies past the Colorado Rockies 10-9 yesterday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The NBA says referees missed a foul call late in the Warriors' Game 1 win that would have given the Clippers a chance to tie the score. Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul lost the ball out of bounds with 18.9 seconds left Saturday and Golden State leading 107-105. The league's president for basketball operations says that the Warriors' Draymond Green should have been whistled for a foul, which would have given Paul two free throws.
