Josh Beckett Tossed the First No-Hitter of His Career

Josh Beckett no hitter

The first no-hitter of the 2014 Major League Baseball season belongs to Josh Beckett, who held the Philadelphia Phillies hitless this afternoon. The 34-year-old righty threw a career-high 128 pitches in his first ever no-no, striking out six and walking three.

It’s the first time the Phillies have been no-hit since 1978 and is the 21st no-hitter in Dodgers history.

Beckett retired 23 consecutive hitters before allowing a ninth-inning walk to Jimmy Rollins.

He battled back to strike out Chase Utley with a 3-2 pitch at the knees to clinch the feat.
