Lester Throws No-Hitter In Boston

Jon Lester threw the eighteenth no-hitter in Red Sox history on Monday night as he guided Boston to a 7-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

Lester allowed just two baserunners, while striking out nine batters.

Boston enjoyed their last no-hitter on Sept. 1, 2007 when Clay Buchholz posted one in just his second Major League start.

The Red Sox scored five runs in the third inning, and catcher Jason Varitek provided yet another offense spark in the seventh with a two-run home run.

Lester survived cancer to battle back and pitch in the team's World Series-clinching game last fall.

This is an incredible story, he fought cancer last year and was facing death just a year ago and now he just threw a no-hitter, what a remarkable story.

He's a strong kid who has really been trying to find his rhythm so this is definitely a good sign.
That's great and I'm glad he made a great comeback. Now... for the conspiracy: do you think the other team realize that they weren't going to win and just gave him the No-Hitter title out of sympathy?

I know, I know, it's crazy. I just wanted to throw it out there to think about.


Certified Shitlord
Why would they do that?

You obviously don't follow the Red Sox or know about Lester. He got over cancer a year or so ago, there's no reason to think of a conspiracy!


Lester was just lights out, that's all.

I actually golfed in a cancer benefit tournament the day Lester threw his no-no. Funny how this world works sometimes.
