(NECN: Boston, Mass.) - 24-year-old lefty Jon Lester pitched a no-hitter Monday night to lead the Red Sox to a 7-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals. It was the first no-hitter in the majors this season and the first no-hitter by a lefty for the Red Sox since 1956. Lester allowed just two baserunners, walking Billy Butler in the second inning and Esteban German to open the nignth. He struck out nine, including Alberto Callaspo to end the game. Red Sox manager Terry Francona gave Lester, a cancer survivor, a long hard embrace when the game ended. "He just said he was proud of me," Lester said. "I've been through a lot the last couple of years. He's been like a second dad to me. It was just a special moment right there." <a href="http://www.necn.com/Boston/Sports/Lester-speaks-after-first-nohitter-of-08/1211250944.html" target="_blank">www.necn.com/Boston/Sports/Lester-speaks-after-first-nohitter</a>
