The Mets Still Don't Have One

Top Batters:
Kansas City - David DeJesus 0-4.

Boston - Jason Varitek 2-3, HR, 2 RBI

How was DeJesus KC's best hitter in their 7-0 loss to the Red Sox? Well, he didn't strike out. That's pretty good considering Jon Lester K'ed 9 batters. He didn't pick up either of the two walks Lester issued, though. Hits? Well, no Jon didn't give up any hits. I guess you could call it a "no-hitter". Now, when is the last time the Sox had a no-hitter? Hmmm... I can't seem to place it... oh yeah; it was Clay Buchholz also K'ing 9 (and walking 3) against the O's in his second major league start late last year. Congratulations to Jon, I guess. At least it wasn't against Baltimore.

[Edit: Joe Posnanski had a great write-up of the game; recommended reading.]
