Tim Lincecum With an eye toward a possible one-game playoff, the Giants have swapped Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner's spots in the team's rotation.

Lincecum will now pitch tomorrow against the Diamondbacks and Bumgarner will pitch on Thursday. Lincecum, who will be on full rest because of Monday's off day, would then be able to pitch on a full rest in a possible one-game playoff.

San Francisco heads into Tuesday's game with the Diamondbacks one game ahead of the Padres in the National League Central, while the Braves lead the wild card by a half-game over the Padres.

San Diego heads to San Francisco for a three-game series starting Friday. The Giants will have Barry Zito starting the series against the Padres, followed by Matt Cain and Jonathan Sanchez.
