Jon Lester Throws a No-Hitter

Tonight Jon Lester threw a no-hitter for the Boston Red Sox. I was purposely staying away from ESPN because of the Cub game, but saw the Red Sox – Royals game on so I stayed. I was able to watch the last two innings. After his ordeal with cancer this is a great story of perseverance. I was happy to see it. It was the 18th no no in BoSox history, and probably one of the best feel good stories in baseball in a while. We need some more of these instead of the negative things that we keep hearing everyday. The Fenway crowd was electric as they should have been. I saw a great graphic on ESPN after the game. Four of the last six no-hitters in the AL were thrown by Red Sox pitchers. One of the other two was of course Mark Buehrle. I will get to see him pitch on Thursday night. Maybe he can work his magic all over again.
