The San Diego Padres suffered yet another public beating today, when Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum threw his second career no-hitter in AT&T Park.

It was, in fact, a replay of past trauma for the beleagured San Diego team. Lincecum threw his first no-hit game against the Padres in Petco Park last July, with 148 pitches as opposed to today's 113 -- which pretty much caused the Internet to explode. Fellow Giant Jonathan Sanchez threw a no-hitter against the Padres in 2009.

Today's victory caused work stoppages throughout San Francisco, as baseball fans drifted away from their cubicles to crowd around tiny office televisions. The final pitch -- resulting in a 4-0 win for the Giants -- induced resounding cheers.

At 30, Lincecum has entered Baseball's Hall of Fame as one of two pitchers to throw a no-hitter against the same team. (The other honoree is Addie Joss.) He's become something of a local folk hero. Here is a montage of previous Lincecum career highlights for you to enjoy:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
