Tim Lincecum faced the Padres yesterday for the first time since no-hitting them on June 25, but rather than throwing his third no-hitter against San Diego in the past two years he merely settled for 6.1 innings of one-run ball–with three whole hits allowed!–in a Giants victory.
Lincecum is now 16-6 with a 2.32 ERA in 29 career starts versus the Padres, racking up 216 strikeouts in 194 innings while holding them to a .196 batting average.
That includes the two no-hitters since the beginning last season, during which time Lincecum is 6-1 with a 1.99 ERA and .163 opponents’ batting average against San Diego.
San Francisco and San Diego will play seven more games this season, all in September, so Timmy may have time for another dominant start or two against the Padres.
