Tim Lincecum Throws First No-Hitter

San Francisco Giant pitcher Tim Lincecum can add another achievement to his mantle. On Saturday, in a game against the San Diego Padres, Lincecum threw his first career no-hitter -- a career high of 148 pitches.

"Right now I think I'm just kind of coming down and don't know where to be emotionally," Lincecum told The Associated Press.

The pitcher is the recipient of two Cy Young Awards and two World Series rings.

Cory Monteith

Cory Monteith, star of the Fox show "Glee," was found dead Saturday afternoon in a Vancouver, Canada, hotel room, police confirmed late Saturday night. He was 31.

Although the cause of death is not yet known, police have ruled out foul play.

The actor had checked into Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on July 6 and was scheduled to check out Saturday, according to police. When he did not check-out, staff went to his hotel room at noon and discovered his body.

Royal Baby

The newest addition to the royal family will be surrounded by queens, princes, dukes and duchesses.

But there is one grandmother the royal baby will never know-- the late Princess Diana.

Many wonder what Diana might have been like as a grandmother.

Diana revolutionized the role of royal mothers, insisting that her boys have as normal a childhood as possible.

But she also insisted that her boys learn about those less fortunate.

She famously took William and Harry to visit AIDS victims and the homeless.

Many believe she would have worked to do similar socially conscious things with her grandchildren.

It was 16 years ago this summer when Diana was killed in a Paris car accident.

Since her death, her sons have worked tirelessly to honor their mother - holding charity concerts in her memory and doing relief work in Africa.
