We have our third no-hitter of the 2014 MLB season, with San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum throwing a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres in Wednesday's 4-0 Giants win. Lincecum was in the midst of a less-than-outstanding season, with a 5-5 record and a 4.90 ERA.

Like last year, Lincecum's no-hitter was well-timed and ends a slump, at least temporarily. Lincecum threw threw his first-ever no-hitter last season, also against the Padres. This is his 8th season, and he hasn't been an all-star since 2011.

But he may feel like one today, because Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter against San Diego. Thanks to the magic of MLB.com video embedding, you can watch the last out below.

"It was not a stuff day. It was more of a location day," Lincecum told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Right now, I guess I'm just saying it's really cool."

Previously this season, Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw have thrown no-hitters. This win puts the Giants 3.5 games up on the Dodgers in the NL West, with the Dodgers playing the Royals tonight.

Good for Timmy.   Who is blowing more cold than hot these days...

Noticed he was wearing a USA kit post game.  Complete with Lincecum 55 on the back.  

Which was cool.
