Josh Beckett of the Los Angeles Dodgers threw his first career no-hitter on Sunday at Citizens Bank Ballpark against the Philadelphia Phillies. It is the first no-hitter in the major leagues this season.
Ever since Jayson Werth got hurt in 2012 and the Phillies fans taunted him, nothing has gone well for them. Sunday wasn’t any different. The hitting was atrocious and Josh Beckett gets to add this to his already stellar resume that includes two World Series championships and a World Series MVP award.
It took him 128 pitches, but he stayed in the game and it will be remembered forever. This is the first no-hitter the Dodgers have thrown since Hideo Nomo in 1996.
