San Francisco Giants
San Diego Padres
Three straight wins including a no-hitter isn’t too shabby for the defending World Champions, however a four game sweep of the Padres was not to be. Sunday afternoon was less than favorable for starter Barry Zito as he allowed four runs in two plus innings as well as three home runs.
The Padres got some measure of revenge for Lincecum’s no hitter on Saturday, tattooing Giants pitching for 10 runs and 12 hits, including four home runs. Will Venable, Chris Denorfia, Nick Hundley and Carlos Quentin all homered and had multi-hit games.
The Giants actually got off to a good start with leadoff hitter Andres Torres roping a triple to begin the game. He scored on Marco Scutaro’s RBI single, and just two batters into the game, the Giants found themselves in the lead. They were unable to score any additional runs and entered the bottom of the first with a one run advantage.
It would be short lived as leadoff hitter Everth Cabrera single to left. Zito caught Cabrera leaning and picked him off ...

In the third inning of Friday night’s San Francisco Giants-San Diego Padres game at Petco Park, a routine fly ball along the third base line wasn’t caught because an umpire boxed out Giants shortstop Brandon
WHAT A PLAY
Tim Lincecum and his soul patch threw his first career no-hitter Saturday night against the Padres, but Lincecum is going to owe Hunter Pence dinner or naming rights to his first born or something after Pence made a remarkable diving grab to end the eighth and keep the no-no in tact. Lincecum also got some nifty help from Pablo Sandoval an inning earlier. It’s the Giants’ 14th...
First of all…Tim Lincecum, I want to say Congratulations…and Thank You. I know that the relationship between you and the fans hasn’t been so clean the last couple of seasons, but we are still rooting for you, and we appreciate that you are still working on your art and craft, and doing it so that Giants fans can appreciate it, rather than some who don’t, and wait until...

Biggest Surprise of 1st Half:
The biggest surprise of the 1st half is obviously how poorly the Giants have played the past couple of months, playing themselves out of 1st place and into 4th in the NL West division. But if I had to choose a player, it would be Giants second basemen Marco Scutaro. Since being traded to the Giants...
Team: San Diego Padres
Record: 42-54 (8.5 GB)
Biggest Surprise of First Half:
The whole month of June was a surprise for San Diego Padres fans. For the first time in over 2 years the team was above .500. Jedd Gyorko brought life to the team when he started his rookie year at the start of April. With 25 RBI’s and a .272 batting average, Gyorko brought some much needed offense to...
2013 has not been kind to Cameron Maybin. After missing most of the first two months of the season with a wrist impingement, he played just four games before suffering posterior cruciate ligament damage. Now it seems that the San Diego Padres outfielder might finally be approaching a return to the field, with MLB.com's Jamal Collier reporting that Maybin has finally started...
It was the second time in 11 days that a major league pitcher achieved what some can only dream about, Tim Lincecum threw his first career no-hitter. He is the second pitcher in 2013 to do so. Lincecum pitched a great game. He has faced a bunch of problems this season and for him to achieve something that most Major League pitchers can only dream of, it shows how focused he is this...
Carlos Quentin hit one of San Diego's four home runs and drove in three runs as the Padres routed Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-1 on Sunday, a day after being no-hit by Tim Lincecum.
Nick Hundley had a homer among his three hits and Chris Denorfia and Will Venable also went deep as the Padres avoided a four-game sweep by the defending World Series champions heading...
HE DID IT!
Tim Lincecum threw the second no-hitter of the season and seventh in Giants history. Read all about the pitcher's accomplishment.
You have to give the Padres an ‘A’ for effort on Friday night as they tried to pull off the hidden ball trick. Check out the Padres’ Everth Cabrera and Sean O’Sullivan attempt the hidden-ball trick on the Giants’ Pablo Sandoval, but in true Padres fashion it didn’t work. Sean O’Sullivan had to move, didn’t he? Good game, good effort.

Right-handed starter Chris Heston has been designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Jeff Francoeur. Heston, who was struggling mightily at the AAA level, had a 5.80 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 19 starts.
To keep Heston in the organization, he will have to clear waivers. Something that appears likely given his struggles.

What a long strange trip it has been for San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum. At one time he appeared like he was set to be the next G.O.A.T. Than he seemed to lose his mojo and became a mere mortal like the rest of the us.
But not Saturday night.
It may have taken him 148 pitches, but the man tossed his first career no-hitter. Oh--and he had 13 strikeouts to boot...
Tim Lincecum has had a rough go of things over the last two years. His struggles have prompted questions about his ability to pitch going forward and about his health.
