SAN DIEGO (AP) — Tim Lincecum has thrown his first career no-hitter and the second in the majors in 11 days, a gem saved by a spectacular diving catch by right fielder Hunter Pence in the San Francisco Giants' 9-0 win against the last-place San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, was the loser when Cincinnati's Homer Bailey no-hit the Giants on July 2, the first in the majors this year.

Lincecum (5-9) was in control from the start, striking out 13 and throwing a career-high 148 pitches.

Still, he needed some help. Pence caught Alexi Amarista's sinking liner with a full dive to end the eighth.

The Padres remain the only team without a no-hitter.
