The San Diego Padres suffered yet another public beating today, when Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum threw his second career no-hitter in AT&T Park.

It was, in fact, a replay of past trauma for the beleagured San Diego team. Lincecum threw his first no-hit game against the Padres in Petco Park last July, with 148 pitches as opposed to today's 113 -- which pretty much caused the Internet to explode. Fellow Giant Jonathan Sanchez threw a no-hitter against the Padres in 2009.

Today's victory caused work stoppages throughout San Francisco, as baseball fans drifted away from their cubicles to crowd around tiny office televisions. The final pitch -- resulting in a 4-0 win for the Giants -- induced resounding cheers.

At 30, Lincecum has entered Baseball's Hall of Fame as one of two pitchers to throw a no-hitter against the same team. (The other honoree is Addie Joss.) He's become something of a local folk hero. Here is a montage of previous Lincecum career highlights for you to enjoy:
