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.

    It’s bad when a headline is about a player not throwing a no-hitter vs a team.

      Just the opposite, especially if you’re the Padres.

    That’s actually not too much better than the Padres hit the rest of the NL this year. :p

    Hey Gleeman, cut Timmy some slack. He had one off day, OK? Hopefully he’ll be back to his old self soon.

    Looks like they NEED to set up their rotation to ENSURE he pitches against them at least one more time.

    Little thing called a pennant race they’re in against the $odgers…

    No guarantees of course, but those stats sure scream that he should be given a start against them again, even if he ends up losing.

    Each game matters…
