Jon Lester tossed a no hitter against the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. The Red Sox defeated the Royals by a score of 7-0. Lester allowed two walks and struck out nine batters in the game. The complete game was Lester’s first of his career as well. Boston’s last no-hitter was pitched by Clay Buchholz, who shut down the Baltimore Orioles in just his second major league start last Sept. 1
Jason Varitek had a two run home while Manny Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis both had an rbi in the game. The Red Sox only managed five hits in the game but Varitek came up big and score two runs with one swing of the bat.
Congrats to Lester on throwing the no hitter. Red Sox Nation is going crazy tonight! Red Sox Blog
