Matt Cain, who lost the series opener and has yet to beat Cincinnati in three starts this season, will start Game 5 against Mat Latos.

The Reds haven't won a home playoff game in 17 years. One thing in Cincinnati's favor -- it hasn't dropped three straight at home all season.

Lincecum relieved in the fourth inning with the Giants ahead 3-2. The two-time NL Cy Young winner struck out six in 4 1-3 innings, allowing one run.
