No-No for Lester!

24 year-old John Lester became the first Boston lefthander to throw a no-hitter since Mel Parnell in 1956 as the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 7-0 tonight! Lester joins fellow 23 year-old Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz who threw a no-hitter last year and now the Sox have had 18 no-no's in team history, second only to the Los Angeles Dodgers! An amazing feat considering Fenway is a hitters' park and neither Roger Clemens, Curt Schilling, or Pedro Martinez threw a no-hitter while in a Red Sox uniform.
