You knew this one would be on the list. It was by far one of the best things from 2013, and one of my personal favorite moments as a Giants fan.

"Tim Lincecum pitched the first no-hitter of his career tonight in the San Francisco Giants 9-0 rout of the San Diego Padres. The Giants needed San Diego after the skid they were on. So far in San Diego, they have won the first 3 of a 4 game series. Fortunately, Lincecum had some help from his teammates, not only with the bat, but also in the field. Pablo Sandoval made a couple of long throws over the first base to keep the Padres hitless. But Hunter Pence was the difference maker in the bottom of the 8th, making a fantastic catch in right field. This was also the first no hitter thrown in PETCO Park in San Diego."
