Liberty grad blanks Atlanta Braves

Former Liberty High School standout Tim Lincecum didn’t throw a no-hitter but he definitely had one of the post-season pitching gems of the season. The San Francisco Giants’ ace tossed a two-hitter and struck out 14 as the Giants blanked the Atlanta Braves 1-0 in the Thursday opener of their National League Division Series.

Lincecum, who threw 119 pitches, went the distance for just his second complete game of the season. He was still throwing strong in the ninth inning, striking out two batters.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner is the first pitcher to strikeout 12 or more in the playoffs since 2000 when Roger Clemens had 15 strikeouts for the New York Yankees against the Seattle Mariners.

Lincecum’s gem came just a day after Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay tossed a no-hitter against Cincinnati in the Phillies’ NL Division Series opener.
