Josh Beckett threw the first no-no of is career today against a very good Phillies lineup. Beckett threw 128 pitches, walked 3 and struck out six in the 6-0 win. Beckett rang up Chase Utley on a called strike 3 to end the game and secure the no-hitter. Beckett mixed his fast ball with a dirty curve that kept batters guessing. “It was awesome. You think about it pretty much from the fourth on. I’m not one of those guys that carried a lot of no-hitters deep into games,” he said. Last July, Beckett had a rib removed in thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. On the other side of the mound Phillies right-hander AJ Burnett gave up 6 runs, 4 of which were earned, and 11 Hits in 7 innings. Adrian Gonzalez hit an RBI double with two outs to make it 1-0. Justin Turner led off the 2nd with a homer and Erisbel Arruebarrena drove in a run in the sixth with an RBI single to put the lead at 3-0. The Dodgers added three more in the seventh.
DID YOU KNOW? This is the First no-hitter of the year.
