What Are the Chances?
BOBO HOLLOMAN, who pitched for the St. Louis Browns in 1953, had a career record of 3--7, but one no-hitter. Roger Clemens, Steve Carlton and Greg Maddux have 1,033 combined wins—and not a single no-no. It's just proof that chance plays a big role in getting one. Boston's Jon Lester (above) said as much after his no-hitter last week, humbly pointing out that the bloops and line drives all need to find somebody's glove. He should know: a lefty, in Fenway—and coming back from cancer? Talk about overcoming the odds.
