Lincecum is attempting to throw the first no-hitter of his career and the second no-hitter of the season.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum has tossed seven no-hit innings against the San Diego Padres as he attempts to become the second pitcher to throw a no-hitter in 2013.
This play by Pablo Sandoval was the third out of the inning:
Lincecum has dominated San Diego, striking out 11 Padres. Four Padres have reached base; Chase Headley has drawn two walks against the right-hander, Everth Cabrera has drawn one, and Linceum hit Jedd Gyorko with a pitch in the second inning.
Lincecum has thrown 114 pitches through seven innings. The starter is scheduled to face Rene Rivera, Chris Denorfia and Cabrera in the bottom of the eighth.
There have been 14 no-hitters in San Francisco Giants history. Matt Cain threw the most recent no-hitter, a perfect game on June 13, 2012 against the Houston Astros.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey threw the first no-hitter of the season and the second no-hitter of his career against the Giants on July 2.
