Ginats Tim Lincecum Throws 1st No-Hitter

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On July 14, 2013 @ 8:51 AM In MLB | No Comments

Tim Lincecum tossed aside his recent struggles and pitched his first career no-hitter and the second in the majors in 11 days, a gem saved by a spectacular diving catch by right fielder Hunter Pence in the San Francisco Giants’ 9-0 win over last-place San Diego on Saturday night.

Lincecum has won two Cy Young Awards and two World Series rings. Now he has something really remarkable — a no-hitter in which he threw a whopping career-high 148 pitches.

“Right now I think I’m just kind of coming down and don’t know where to be emotionally,” a calm Lincecum said afterward.

The slightly built right-hander was in control from his first pitch until his last, which settled into left fielder Gregor Blanco’s glove and set off a wild celebration in front of a pro-Giants crowd at Petco Park.
