No July swoon

After one of the most brutal June swoons ever -- the Giants were in first by 9 and half, then went 4-15 -- Tim Lincecum followed his no-hitter with 8 innings of shutout ball. 

He had 73 strikes and 40 balls in the no-no and 73 strikes and 40 balls tonight per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chron --

"Just tremendous," Hunter Pence said after Lincecum followed the no-hitter with eight shutout innings and pitched the Giants back into first place in the National League West after a 24-hour absence.
"I really don't know how to describe it. They were two phenomenal performances. He's got that groove, and it's fun to play behind him."
In his no-hitter, Lincecum threw 73 strikes and 40 balls. On Tuesday, he threw 73 strikes and 40 balls.
Lincecum could have pitched the ninth in a bid for his first consecutive shutouts in the big leagues, but he did record consecutive scoreless outings for the first time since 2011.
