Jon Lester can now add pitching a no-hitter to his already amazing list of accomplishments. The 24-year-old lefty, who survived cancer to pitch the clincher of Boston’s 2007 World Series victory, shut down Kansas City 7-0 Monday night for the first no-hitter in the majors this season.
Francona was asked during the press conference, “What pitches did Lester have working today?”, his answer: “All of them.” Lester was dominant tonight, throwing first-pitch strikes to get ahead of batters and control the game. Ellsbury’s spectacular catch in the 4th inning turned out to be the major play of the game.
Congrats Jon, you’ve earned it!
