Lincecum throws 1st no-hitter, beating SD

SAN DIEGO - The Freak is back.

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.

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.
