Tim Lincecum throws first career no-hitter.

Something happened today at PetCo Park in San Diego tonight. Something special. Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants threw his first career no-hitter. With Giants and Padres fans on his side in the late innings, Timmy coasted his way to his no-hitter on a fly-ball to left field. Of course this would not have been possible without a few key plays from his defense.  Not to discredit his impressive performance. Timmy has won two World Series', and has finally separates himself as one of the few to actually accomplish this. It's not as great as a perfect game, but it is still quite an accomplishment. Not many pitchers can say they pitched a no-hitter. Now he can. In addition to the no hitter, he also recorded a season high 14 strikeouts. As well as a career high 148 pitches. This game may be just enough to kick the 2-time Cy Young award winner out of his slump. The 9-0 victory proved how dominant Lincecum can be when he's at the top of his game. Let's just hope for the Giants' sake this extraordinary play continues.
