The Freak did it again. San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum tossed his second career no-hitter on Wednesday afternoon. Just like his first one in 2013, it came against the San Diego Padres.
Lincecum struck out six batters and only walked one on 113 pitches as he led the Giants to a 4-0 win. This time, he got to do it in front of the home fans at AT&T Park.
The 30-year-old, who has also won two National League Cy Young awards, became the 29th pitcher in the history of Major League Baseball to throw multiple no-hitters. Lincecum is the second pitcher ever to no-hit the same team twice, per MLB Public Relations.
"I'm just relieved right now just to see the way things went yesterday, and the pitching group as a whole has just been kind of scuffling. So, I'm not saying that I needed to do that by myself," Lincecum said in the locker room after the game. "But to be a part of something like that is fun. I don't know, I wasn't really thinking about it out there, so at the very end it kind of caught me by surprise. Then, what do you know? You got a no-hitter."
Before he could answer any questions on the actual field right after completing the no-no, Lincecum was doused in Gatorade.
