Josh Beckett Throws First Dodgers No-Hitter Since Nomo: Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday afternoon. The 34-year-old gave up three walks and had a pitch count of 128 in the 6-0 road victory. It's his first no-no and the 24th for the franchise. The last was by Hideo Nomo against the Colorado Rockies on Sept. 17, 1996. It's the second no-hitter ever at Citizens Bank Park, following Roy Halladay's playoff no-hit victory for the Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds on Oct. 6, 2010. The last visitor to throw one in Philadelphia was Bill Stoneman of the Montreal Expos on April 17, 1969, at Connie Mack Stadium.

In tortured Philly dreams tonight, buckets o' chicken will be chasing cheesesteaks across the river to Camden.
