SAN DIEGO -- Manager Bud Black said he wasn't anticipating any residual hangover Friday from his team after being no-hit Wednesday by Tim Lincecum of the Giants.

"These guys have played their whole lives … tough losses, tough defeats," Black said. "I think players are conditioned to turn the page as quickly as possible."

Lincecum no-hit the Padres for the second time in as many seasons with his gem in the series finale at AT&T Park. Last July 13, he did the same at Petco Park before the Padres scored 10 runs the following day in a victory over the Giants.

In 2009, when Jonathan Sanchez of the Giants tossed a no-hitter against the Padres, San Diego scored just one run the next day. But the day after that, they scored 12 runs against the Giants.

Black said the same principal of bouncing back after a brush with history applies to games that go the Padres' way, too.

"I think it's on both ends, from euphoria to disappointment. I think what makes a player what he is … it's the ability to let the bad go. You've got to let the good go, too," Black said.

How can players do that so easily?

"Because you have to play the next day," he said.
