Beckett Pitched His First Career No-hitter Against the Philadelphia Phillies

The no-hitter has always made me take notice of Major League Baseball. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Josh Beckett had everyone take notice as he pitched his first no-hitter in the 6-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Beckett bounced back from surgery and doubts by fans and himself if he would ever pitch in the Bigs again. Beckett his own biggest critic doubted if his pitching capability would allow him to pitch a no-hitter. However, he does not have to doubt anymore as the first career no-hitter clearly made a believer out of fans, the Phillies, and himself.

The no-hitter against the Phillies has been the pinnacle for Beckett after his return from suffering a nerve condition in his right arm and having a rib removed in thoracic outlet syndrome surgery to correct the problem. Beckett had 6 strikeouts and 3 walks for the game. It was a dominant performance as Beckett truly had his curveball working in his first career no-hitter. It was the first no-hitter by a Dodgers’ pitcher since 1996 when Hideo Nomo threw a no-hit gem against the Colorado Rockies in 1996.

It is game that no pitcher or fan will ever forget.
