SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tim Lincecum pitched his second no-hitter against the San Diego Padres in less than a year, allowing only one runner Wednesday and leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-0 win.

Lincecum totally shut down the weakest-hitting team in the majors, striking out six and walking one. San Francisco fielders didn’t need to make any exceptional plays to preserve Lincecum’s gem.

Lincecum (6-5) threw 113 pitches for this win. Last July 13 at San Diego, he threw 148 pitches while holding the Padres hitless.

The 30-year-old right-hander became just the second pitcher in major league history to twice no-hit the same team. Addie Joss did it for Cleveland against the Chicago White Sox in 1908 and again in 1910.

This was the third no-hitter this season. Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers previously threw them.

Chase Headley was San Diego’s lone runner, walking in the second inning.
