No hits, just two walks and no runs gave the California Sea Otters a boost [as one might imagine it would] in my Fantasy League.

    Nice game for the Otters!

    Of the last 6 A.L. no hitters 4 of them have been Red Sox pitchers (yuk!). The last lefty Red Sox no hitter was Mel Parnell (the Thumper not included).

    August 2006- John Lester diagnosed with lymphoma. October 2007- Lester is the winning pitcher in the World Series clincher. May 2008- Lester no hits the Royals (sorry Greg Hack where ever you are). It’s been quite a 21 months for the young man.
