Sportsman of the Week Ending 7/14/2013

As we navigate between major Tennis, Golf, and Cycling championships, this week's Sportsman of the Week hangs his hat on one unbelievable performance.  Tim Lincecum tossed the second no-hitter of 2013, just before the All Star break (which is really second half).  But he also exhibited some level of reclaim of past success in his Monday start.  For the week, 16 innings, 6 hits, 3 runs, 24 strikeouts. That's like 3 starts worth of strikeouts.  In the no-hitter against the San Diego Padres, he approached 150 pitches which is unheard of in today's game.  But he battled, received an amazing play by Hunter Pence, and got his first career no-hitter.  A worthy selection as Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
