Was it the magic of the full moon?
Was it the stars were aligned just right?
Or was it just that Jon Lester has worked his ass off trying to improve his getting ahead of the pitch count this season?
Who'da thunk that a random Monday night in May, during interleague play - we'd get to witness a no hitter? And - a record breaking night for my boy Jason - might I add? (Sigh...love him!!! J ust incase anyone was wondering…) It was a great win - a great team effort and a tremendous accomplishment overall.
It was an absolutely great game to watch.
Tonight will be interesting, with rookie Justin Masterson pitching. My goodness he's tall - on record as 6'6. I mean, I knew pitchers were taller - but I guess I just never realized how tall pitchers generally seem to be! But then again, when you're only 5'1 like I am (clearly, just an inch over dwarf status. No, not really but I'm pretty flipping petite) - everyone seems tall. After the first few inches requiring me to look up in the sky towards someone -- who counts any more!
