Worth noting

• As expected, right-hander Tim Lincecum has recovered swiftly from his bruised left knee and will start Thursday's series finale against Arizona.

"He's running around like everything's fine," Bochy said. "He has no issues."

Lincecum was struck on his knee by a line drive hit by Oakland's Daric Barton last Friday.

• Posey' game-winning home run Monday traveled 453 feet -- the longest of his career -- according to ESPN's home run tracker. Previously, Posey's longest drive traveled 443 feet on July 13, 2012, against Houston at AT&T Park.

• Before Monday, the Giants last won a season opener on the road after trailing by at least four runs in 1941. Facing a 4-0 deficit at Ebbets Field, the Giants surged back to triumph, 6-4.
