Episode Summary

5/19/2008: Jon Lester's No-Hitter
Kansas City Royals 0 at Boston Red Sox 7, F -- If only all the spectators and teammates who reveled in Jon Lester's magical Monday night at Fenway Park could have seen the way it started. Warming up in the bullpen with catcher Jason Varitek before the game, Lester, he admitted after the game, "had nothing." As it turns out, he knows a thing or two about perseverance. And on this night, he stayed the course to throw a no-hitter, the 18th Red Sox history. With each passing inning, his pitches became filthier and filthier. It all came to a jubilant end when the lefty blew a 94-mph heater -- his 130th pitch of the night -- by Alberto Callaspo. Just like that, the 7-0 victory was complete, so was Lester's no-no, not to mention the first complete game and the first shutout of his career.moreless
