Dodgers' Josh Beckett Pitches No-Hitter Against Phillies

May 25, 2014

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett threw the first no-hitter of his career Sunday, and also the first no-hitter of the 2014 season.

Beckett, 34, achieved the milestone during his team's 6-0 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, the Associated Press reports. Beckett struck out six players, walked three others and didn't allow the opposing team — which counts former MVPs and All-Stars on its lineup — to score a single hit on the 128 pitches he threw.

Major league baseball hasn't seen a no-hitter since Henderson Álvarez of the Miami Marlins threw against the Detroit Tigers on the last day of the 2013 season.

The right-handed Beckett, whose career was threatened by injuries last year, is the first Dodger to pitch a no-hitter since Hideo Nomo back in September of 1996.
