Lincecum dominates Rockies in Denver

Lincecum dominates Rockies in Denver · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes

Tim Lincecum has no-hit stuff. How many times have we heard that?

Monday night, he flirted with a no-no by throwing six hitless innings in Denver of all places, where hits can come by the dozen.

Lincecum gave up his first hit in the seventh inning, when Carlos Gonzalez lined a one-out single to right field. Lincecum lasted 7 2/3 innings, surrendered three hits and got credit for the Giants' 8-1 victory over the NL West's hottest team.

Gonzalez scored on Todd Helton's double.

The 6 1/3 hitless innings marked the closest Lincecum has ever come to a no-no. Previously, he went six hitless innings on July 9, 2009, against San Diego -- the very next night, Sanchez did no-hit the Padres.

Did Lincecum have a no-hitter on his mind before it ended?

"I wasn't really thinking about it. Up until that inning, I was more worried about just trying to throw strikes," said Lincecum, adding he was more concerned about his strike-to-walk ratio in the early innings, which he said "wasn't very good."

Still, he ended with 10 strikeouts (Troy Tulowitzki twice) and three walks.

Lincecum was handed an early 8-0 lead. Nate Schierholtz hit a monster homer into the third deck in right field, Barry Bonds territory. And Pat Burrell and Freddy Sanchez also homered.
