    He's done it again. For the second time in less than a year, Tim Lincecum has pitched a no-hitter against the weak-hitting San Diego Padres. Lincecum (6-5) allowed just one base runner: a second-inning walk of Chase Headley. He struck out six on 113 total pitches, using a big-breaking curve to set up his fastball. He also added two hits at the plate and scored two runs. The Giants won the game 4-0. Lincecum threw his other career no-hitter last July, also against the Padres. In last year's no-hitter, he walked four and struck out 13 on 148 pitches. The...

    Don't mess with sports fans when it comes to pizza. Especially free pizza. Major League Baseball and Domino's teamed up for a promotion to give away 20,000 free pizzas to people who have an MLB.com account after the first and second no-hitters of the 2014 regular season.

    Awful Announcing ^ | August 16, 2012 | Matt Yoder
    Vin Scully in 1960: It's insulting the listeners to make them think they're silly and superstitious enough to believe my telling them that a no-hitter is going will affect the game. I'm not breaking a precedent. Other announcers do the same. You see, no one expects a listener to hang on to every word for three hours. They leave the radio from time to time and this service must be rendered.

    Weaver's historic night a family affair ANAHEIM -- This is why Jered Weaver elected to stay with the Angels, turning his back on the prospect of a free-agency windfall next winter. With Dave and Gail Weaver, his parents, and Kristin, his wife, in attendance and cheering every delivery, Weaver unleashed his first no-hitter on Wednesday night at Angel Stadium, silencing the Twins, 9-0, by facing two over the minimum. "That was a major part of it, to stay at home, to have the comfort of my family and friends," Weaver said, referring to his decision to sign a five-year, $85...

    ANAHEIM -- The Angels' offense finally kicked into gear in the series finale against the Twins, but that wasn't even close to being the story. On Wednesday night, it was all about Jered Weaver, the ace pitcher who recorded his first no-hitter and the ninth individual no-hitter in Angels history, leading his club to a 9-0 victory that gave them the sweep and three straight wins for the first time this year. Weaver came in having given up just three runs in his last 21 2/3 innings. And prior to a two-out, seventh-inning walk to Josh Willingham, the only baserunner...

    It only took a mere 54 years to stand between the first and the newest hitless, runless postseason pitching performance---by a pitcher who had already pitched a perfect game early in the regular season. OK, so Roy Halladay Wednesday afternoon walked Jay Bruce---whose walkoff, leadoff bomb got the Cincinnati Reds here in the first place---on a full count with two out in the fifth. He didn't have to be reminded that nobody's perfect, if you didn't count that fine day in May when he cleaned, scaled, and stuffed the Florida Marlins on eleven strikeouts and no Fish getting to within...

    Here is video of the final inning of the no-hitter Jonathan Sanchez threw for the San Francisco Giants last night against the San Diego Padres. Sanchez came into the game with a 2-8 record and a ERA over 5.00, but he nearly threw a perfect game. In fact, he did not allow a hitter to reach base. The only man who reached did so on an error by 3rd Baseman Juan Uribe. Below is a report on the no-hitter. . . . . (Watch Video)

    Jonathan Sanchez, an unlikely candidate, pitched the majors’ first no-hitter this season Friday night, dominating the San Diego Padres with an array of pitches in the San Francisco Giants’ 8-0 victory. The 26-year-old left-hander returned to the rotation after a nearly three-week demotion to the bullpen—and he only got the call because 303-game winner Randy Johnson(notes) went on the disabled list this week with a shoulder injury. Gold Glove center fielder Aaron Rowand(notes) saved the no-hitter with a leaping catch at the center-field fence to rob pinch-hitter Edgar Gonzalez for the second out of the ninth inning. Sanchez (3-8) nearly...

    Eddie Feigner, the hard-throwing softball showman who barnstormed for more than 50 years with his "The King and His Court" four-man team, died Friday. He was 81.

    John Forbes Kerry believes he is entitled to be commander in chief because of 4 months and 12 days that he spent in Vietnam. Using his logic, I believe I am entitled to be Commissioner of Major League Baseball. I spent three four-month tours of duty back in Little League with Loucks Insurance. And get this, I was a hero. It was many, many years ago but I remember it as if it were yesterday. Loucks was facing Servisoft, a team sponsored by a water service company. Little League is 6 inningss -- each team has 18 outs. Well, one...

    It seemed all too familiar when Mike Rickert pitched a no-hitter for Bowler High School. The performance Thursday came 22 years to the day after his father, John Rickert, accomplished the same feat, against the same team, also in his senior year at Bowler. Although no one realized the connection at the time, the headline in the Shawano Leader on Friday read, "Rickert hurls perfect game" - the same as the headline in the issue of April 23, 1982, announcing his father's no-hitter. "I was joking around with it, because I knew it was the same team, and I was...
