Giants ace Tim Lincecum had a no-hitter through 6 1/3 innings, but Carlos Gonzalez broke up the no-hit bid with one out in the seventh. Lincecum actually kind of ran out of gas after we first posted the no-hitter watch. If there were a such thing as a jinx, maybe you could blame that on us. He ended up leaving after 7 2/3 innings, having only allowed three hits, one earned run and one walk. He struck out 10 hitters, the 29th time in his young career he's punched out at least 10 batters -- tying Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson for the Giants franchise record. Mathewson started 552 games for the Giants. Monday night was Lincecum's 126th start.
Despite losing the no-hitter and shutout, it was still obviously a very impressive outing. Lincecum did it in one of the best hitter's parks in the majors and against one of the top offenses.
Coors Field was second in home runs and first in runs scored in the majors last season.
The Rockies entered the game third in the NL in runs scored, tied for second in home runs and tied for second in on-base percentage.
