Jon Lester Throws a No-Hitter

Monday, May 19, 2008 ·

Jon Lester of the Boston Red Sox no-hit the Kansas City Royals tonight. I know that this is not Philadelphia sports, but it is historic and worthy of noting.
Lester through 130 pitches during his no-hitter while striking out 9 and only walking 2. Lester's no hitter since his teammate Clay Bucholz threw one last season.

The Phillies have not thrown a no-hitter since Kevin Millwood on April 27, 2003. If any Phillie is going throw one anytime soon, it'll likely be tomorrow's starter, Cole Hamels.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
