Giants honor Lincecum's no-no with plaque

SAN FRANCISCO -- Once again, Tim Lincecum literally cemented his place in Giants lore Saturday as a plaque commemorating his June 25 no-hitter against San Diego was unveiled on the club's History Walk.

Lincecum's plaque joined an assortment of 22 others on the portwalk beyond the right-field wall, including one dedicated to his 14-strikeout, 1-0 victory over Atlanta in Game 1 of the 2010 Division Series. Each plaque is devoted to a singular achievement occurring at AT&T Park. Lincecum also no-hit the Padres on July 13, 2013, at San Diego.

Hector Sanchez, who caught Lincecum's second no-hitter, helped Lincecum unveil the plaque as teammates, coaches, manager Bruce Bochy and a gathering of fans witnessed the brief ceremony.

Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow, who served as master of ceremonies, cited Lincecum's immense popularity with teammates.

"Tim is one of the best guys to walk through [longtime equipment manager] Mike Murphy's clubhouse," Krukow said.
