Buehrle Tosses a Gem

Mark Buehrle pitched the first no hitter of this young baseball season against the Texas Rangers yesterday. It was Buehrle's first no hitter of his career and nearly the White Sox second one in a week. Earlier in the week they one-hit the Cleveland Indians, only to lose 2-1. If not for the one walk he issued it would have been a perfect game, although he did only face the minimum of 27 batters because he picked off the lone baserunner. Buehrle eschewed the typical superstition of not talking about the no hitter with teammates during the game as he gabbed and laughed about it the entire game.
