VIDEO: The final out of Josh Beckett’s no-no

May 25, 2014, 4:44 PM EDT

Watch as Dodgers starter Josh Beckett completes his first career no-hitter Sunday in Philly …

Beckett walked three and needed 128 pitches to get through his nine no-hit frames. He also struck out six batters on the afternoon. It was the first time the Phillies had been no-hit since 1978.

      Boston chased this guy out of town and Manny after they took them to the promised land. Is there a worse fan then Boston fan?

    I love the story of triumph, failure, despair, perseverance, and then triumph again. Congratulations to fellow Texan, Josh Beckett, you make us all proud.

    Those last two called strikes. Let’s just says even the home plate ump was rooting for Josh.

    Awesome for him…very cool comeback for the guy.

    He’s a bad @ss ain’t he? Gets his mind right and Josh is a bulldog. Never my fave player but congrats Josh, it’s your night, buddy.

    Earlier today I suggested getting rid of Beckett. Then he did this. Proving once again that I am wrong a lot. Blue with the victory!

    Had a feeling this would happen to the Phillies this year. Beckett’s off speed stuff especially his curveball was filthy after the second

    WOW, just wow !

    One year ago he had no feeling in his fingertips…

    I know Beckett is on cloud 9 and he deserves it after having the rib removed especially. Any no-hitter is special, but there are only about 2 a year on average in MLB. That 94 mph heater down the middle was awesome, and you could tell Utley was looking off-speed. It froze him. Best pitch of Beckett’s life.

    I would disagree slightly with the announcer saying it was the best game of his life however.

    Shutting out the Yankees in Game 7 of the World Series, in my book, was and still is his defining moment, and will be replayed endlessly in years to come, whereas the average no-hitter does not have the pressure or the audience of a World Series Game 7.

    I would love to hear Beckett’s answer to the question, as to which game he felt was his best.

      Forgot that was game 6, not 7 of the 2003 WS

    Kudos to Beckett for his accomplishment.

    To the Philly fans. I am usually one of the first to rail on how bush league the sports fans are in that city, but the crowd stuck around and gave him a good ovation after his no-hitter. Way to go Philly Phans!
