San Francisco, June 25, 2014
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres at AT&T Park today, the second of his career. The Giants right-hander threw 113 pitches over nine innings, the last out recorded on a ground ball to second.
Besides his pitching feat, Lincecum had two hits – two more than the entire Padres team – scored two runs, and even coaxed a walk. Lincecum was one walk away from a prefect game, the only base runner – Padres third baseman Chase Headley – in the second inning.
The two-time National League Cy Young award winner becomes only the second pitcher in Giants history to throw two no-hitters. The other – the great Christy Mathewson – no hit the St. Louis Cardinals in 1901 and the Chicago Cubs in1905. Lincecum’s first, oddly enough, also came against the Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, July 13 of last year.
