“The Freak” Tim Lincecum has been one of the most impressive pitchers in recent history. Although he’s had some difficulties recently, last night he reminded everyone just how damn good he is. As the Giants faced the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, Lincecum dominated from the mound, striking out 13 batters on his way to the first no-hitter of his career. It’s also worth noting that it’s the first no-hitter to be thrown in Petco Park. Even more, it took Lincecum a career-high 148 pitches to reach the milestone. Rest that arm, Timmy.
While it’s hard to make a judgment based on one performance, it looks like Lincecum’s back on track for the time being. The Freak’s cleats of choice were the Nike Gamer iD, which can be configured with either Air, Max Air, or Shox cushioning. A synthetic leather upper with a no-sew construction and a Dynamic Fit sleeve make the Gamer iD a great choice for players seeking a low-profile feel. Customize a pair today for $125.
