PHILADELPHIA — The San Francisco Giants may not need much offense from Carlos Beltran if they play the Phillies again in the postseason.

Tim Lincecum threw six scoreless innings, Pablo Sandoval hit a solo homer and the Giants beat Philadelphia 4-1 on Thursday night in their first game with Beltran.

The All-Star outfielder was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his debut with the defending World Series champions, who won two of three against the major league-leading Phillies in a rematch of the NLCS.

Lincecum and Matt Cain dominated the Phillies last October, and they did so again in this series.

“Our pitchers did a great job and we got the hits when we needed,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “They’re a great club.”

Lincecum (9-8) showed no negative effects from the stomach illness that forced him to push his start back two days. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner allowed three hits, struck out six and worked around four walks.

“I felt fine, a little fatigued but I just tried to keep a good pace,” Lincecum said.

The Phillies hadn’t lost consecutive games since June 4. They went a club-record 45 straight games without dropping two straight.

Sandoval gave the NL West leaders a 1-0 lead when he led off the second inning with an opposite-field shot to left. It was Sandoval’s 10th homer, becoming the first Giant to reach double digits this season. Beltran hit 15 for the Mets before he was traded to San Francisco for pitching prospect Zack Wheeler.

The addition of Beltran should bolster a sagging offense that’s near the bottom in the major statistical categories. Beltran started in right field and batted third. He contributed defensively, making a sliding catch to rob Jimmy Rollins of a hit on a shallow fly in the fifth. Beltran’s streak of reaching base safely was snapped at 32 games.

“I’m not going to lie. I took a deep breath when I saw him slide and the turf flew up,” Bochy said of Beltran’s catch. “He plays hard. That’s how he is. He’s very athletic.”

Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick (5-5) gave up four runs — three earned — and six hits in 6 1-3 innings.

The Giants went up 2-0 in the fourth when Nate Schierholtz ripped an RBI single. Aubrey Huff hit a two-out double and scored on Schierholtz’s liner to right-center.

In the seventh, the Giants had runners at first and third with one out when pinch-hitter Aaron Rowand hit a grounder to third. Michael Martinez bobbled it and then made a wild throw to first base. Schierholtz scored from third and Chris Stewart came all the way around from first, sliding in safely on a close play at the plate to make it 4-0.

Ramon Ramirez took over for Lincecum to start the seventh. He gave up a double to Carlos Ruiz. Chase Utley drove him in when he hit a double off Jeremy Affeldt later in the inning.

Brian Wilson finished for his 33rd save in 37 chances.
