Dodgers' Kershaw fires no-hitter

Yahoo Sports

Clayton Kershaw threw a no-hitter Wedensday night at Dodger Stadium. The best pitcher in the game since he was 23 years old, Kershaw, now 26, struck out 15 hitters, a career high. By the time he threw his arms in the air and welcomed catcher A.J. Ellis to the mound, when the Colorado Rockies had come and gone with what fight they had, the no-hitter – the 22nd by a Dodger and the second in 3½ weeks – was his. (Tim Brown/Yahoo Sports)
