Lester Tosses No Hitter!

It has to be one of the best baseball stories in a long time. Even before what happened tonight in Boston, the Jon Lester story was a great story. In case you missed it, Lester survived a cancer scare last year and came back to help the Boston Red Sox to their second World Series title in the past four years.

Lester took on the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park, facing 29 batters, two over the minumum. The two baserunners both reached base via walks. Yes, you know what that means - he tossed a no-hitter, striking out Alberto Callaspo for the final out of the game!

For a player to come back from cancer and just pitch again in the major leagues is a great accomplishment. What happened in Boston tonight was truly miraculous! Congratulations to Jon Lester on his amazing comeback and no-hitter!
