Analysis: Athletic trainer Dave Groeschner says in a text message that ''he is doing OK'' and Lincecum will be checked out further. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner was walked off the field by Groeschner during the eighth inning of San Francisco's 7-2 loss in Game 2 when his lower back tightened up on him. He hadn't pitched since Sept. 28, not called upon out of the bullpen during the NL Division Series against Atlanta or the NLCS versus St. Louis.

He pitched the Game 5 World Series clincher at Texas in 2010.
