The right-handed Palmer is familiar with the Giants and Lincecum. The two were brief teammates in San Francisco's farm system and Palmer went 0-2 with an 8.53 ERA in three starts with the Giants last year, the first three outings of his career. Today marks his first-ever start against his former club after signing with the Angels this offseason.

Lincecum, who hasn't lost since April 12, also aims to win his seventh decision in a row for the Giants. Lincecum is undefeated over a span of 10 starts in which he has allowed more than three earned runs just once. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner won his second start in a row on Friday, throwing his second career shutout, a seven-hitter versus Oakland.
