    Cody Ross of the Giants hits a home run during the fifth inning of Game 1 of baseball's National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Oct. 16, 2010. The home run was Ross' second of the game.

    Tim Lincecum outdueled Roy Halladay, Cody Ross hit a pair of solo homers and the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 in Game 1 of the NL championship series Saturday night.

    In a mega-hyped matchup between marquee pitchers, neither starter came close to matching his sensational postseason debut last week. Both gave up homers to the No. 8 hitters.

    Halladay's bid for a second straight no-hitter lasted until Ross connected with one out in the third.

    Lincecum, who tossed a two-hitter, gave up three runs on homers to Jayson Werth and Carlos Ruiz in seven innings.
