In July of 2013, San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres.
Against the same team, he did it again Wednesday.
Lincecum threw his second hit-less victory in 12 months in a 4-0 triumph over San Diego.

Then, he celebrated in a silly soccer-and-helmet get-up.
It's another feather in an award-filled cap for Lincecum, one of the best starting pitchers of his generation.
He already has two Cy Young awards under his belt and two World Series titles.
