Lincecum struck out Chase Headley to begin the inning, his 13th strikeout of the game. Carlos Quentin flied out to Gregor Blanco for the second out of the inning, then Yonder Alonso flied out to Blanco for the final out of the game.
It took Lincecum 148 pitches for the feat -- he fell one short of Edwin Jackson's 149-pitch no-hitter on June 25, 2010. Lincecum walked four.
Lincecum becomes the fourth pitcher to throw a no-hitter on the road against the Padres. Pittsburgh Pirates starter Doc Ellis threw a no-hitter on June 12, 1970 at San Diego Stadium, A.J. Burnett threw a no-hitter as a member of the Marlins at Qualcomm Stadium on May 12, 2001, and St. Louis Cardinals starter Bud Smith threw a no-hitter at Qualcomm later that season.
The Giants were the last team to be no-hit, when Homer Bailey no-hit them on July 2 of this year. The Marlins were the last team to have a no-hitter thrown against them and then throw the next no-hitter; Ramon Martinez threw a no-hitter against the Marlins back in 1995, then Al Leiter no-hit the Colorado Rockies the next May.
