Giant Tim Lincecum Throws No Hitter

San Francisco Giants righty Tim Lincecum no-hit the San Diego Padres at AT&T Park on Wednesday afternoon. The gem marks the second no-no of Lincecum’s career and the third this season in Major League Baseball.

Lincecum allowed one base runner on a walk and struck out six to improve to 6-5. No Padre hitter really put Lincecum’s bid in suspense. The Giants scored four runs on eleven hits–including a 4 for 4 performance by catcher Buster Posey–to blank San Diego 4-0 in front of a home crowd of 41,500.

The no-hitter comes as the second in less than a year for Lincecum. Last July 13, he also held the Padres hitless. San Diego, currently 12.5 games behind San Francisco in the NL West, has posted a major-league worst 3.05 runs per game.

Clayton Kershaw no-hit the Colorado Rockies last week and Dodgers teammate Josh Beckett held the Philadelphia Phillies without a hit last month. The three no-hitters match last season’s total. Seven 2012 MLB games ended without a hit.
