Jon Lester Threw a No-Hitter

| | Comments (5)

Red Sox lefty Jon Lester's big accomplishment of the night was preventing the Royals from getting any hits with his nine-strikeout complete game shutout. That's a no-hitter! I am shocked, to say the least. My jinx didn't even work!

Yes, Lester's big story is that he beat non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a sort of cancer. But tonight, we salute him for mowing down the sorry Royals, including Jose Guillen, a TRUE clubhouse cancer.

Addendum: According to NESN, Jason Varitek becomes the first player to ever catch 4 no hitters. -CTC

Nomo, Lowe, Buchholz, and Lester?

I feel like I should be able to do that off the top of my head. Tell me that was right.

Yay feel-good stories.

Harrumph! I don't feel so good.

Wait this is where i meant to post it.

TAKE THAT, CANCER!

Was this was the good kind of no-hitter, or the bad kind?
