This Day in Sports History - 4/4/2001

In his first game with the Boston Red Sox, Hideo Nomo pitches his second no-hitter for a 3 - 0 win over the Orioles at Camden Yards. It's also the first no-hitter by a Red Sox pitcher since Dave Morehead's on September 16, 1965. Nomo throws 110 pitches, walks 3 and strikes out 11. Second baseman Mike Lansing saves the no-hitter when he makes a tumbling backhand catch of Mike Bordick's soft looper for the second out of the ninth inning; two pitches later, Delino DeShields hits a routine fly ball to Troy O'Leary in right field for the final out. Nomo's first no-hitter was with the Dodgers on September 17, 1996, against the Rockies at Coors Field.
