Tim Lincecum of the World Champion San Francisco Giants has thrown a no hitter against the San Diego Padres, throwing 13 strikeouts over 148 pitches.
I hope he throws his arm out ... 148 pitches ... that is old school. I didn’t realize that could happen in SFO. :) (just a gentle ribbing from a PHI phan.)
It was against the last place Padres so it shouldn’t count. /s
Wow, it’s been a rough year and a half for him.
All-star break coming up. Plenty of time to rest his arm. I’m sure that entered into it.
I hate the Giants, but I’ve always liked Lincecum. Good for him.
Wow... 148 pitches! That’s common in college but very rare in the majors these days.
Congratulations to Tim - - I always liked that guy.
Glad to see he has got his mojo back
Lots of people thought he was on his way out
I have to say that I am very impressed with the pitch count. Any idea when a major league pitcher last threw that many pitches?
The only sport I know of where no action whatsoever is sought. I always imagine a game which ends with both pitchers throwing a “no-hit” game. (Thanks, Capt. Obvious, no explanation is necessary.)
Is there a website where I can watch the game? I’d like my twelve year old to see something like that. He pitched four innings last night, got two hits, but no runs. He also hit three home runs. I don’t think he has ever watched a pro baseball game.
It’s Timmy’s contract year, so I’d say he made himself about $20 million + tonight.
Something more, both teams used only 11 players, compare that the Phils games today. I saw all those guy play at Connie Mack way back when.
They all threw their no-hitters AFTER their best seasons were behind them.
That is a bit before my time. I barely remember Connie Mack as a kid, although I saw Jim Bunning throw a perfect game while sitting on my father’s lap in 1964.
Said his first phone call after the game would be to his dad. The dad who taught him how to pitch.
I’m sure there will be a replay available on MLB.com, but you probably need to have a paid subscription. MLB network might show a rerun in the next few days.
