Back at home, back to an offensive funk.

The Giants went 5-2 on the road, hitting well in Denver and St. Louis to the tune of 57 runs and 84 hits.

Then they returned home, to the scene of the hitless crimes.

And banged out all of three hits in a 3-0 loss to the Rockies.

Tim Lincecum gave up three runs in seven innings, and he had no chance of winning.

"There's no magic bullet here," Nike Air Max 95manager Bruce Bochy said. "Timmy was fine. We just didn't swing it. It's simple. You keep talking about it, sometimes they start thinking about it. It'll be up to us to figure it out soon."

Before their successful trip, the Giants lost seven of their final eight during their last homestand, scoring one or no runs in four of those losses.

Now they've lost eight of nine by the bay.

The Giants have hit 72 homers this season, just 17 of those coming at home. Buster Posey is the only Giant to hit a homer at home in the last month.

"We're not looking for home runs," Bochy said. "We want base hits, doubles, things like that."
