Pitching a one-hitter with no other baserunners in a big league game is rare. Getting two gems in one night, well, that may never have happened in major league history before Shelby Miller and Jon Lester each accomplished the feat. St. Louis Cardinals rookie Miller and Boston Red Sox left-hander Lester allowed just one hit and faced only 28 batters - no walks, hit batsmen or errors - in complete-game shutouts Friday night, the first time that has happened in the big leagues, according to STATS, whose database goes back to 1921. Lester was perfect - 17 straight outs - until Toronto's Maicer Izturis hit a two-out double in the sixth inning. Lester, who threw a no-hitter in 2008, then retired the final 10 batters in a 5-0 victory. Miller gave up a leadoff hit to Colorado's Eric Young Jr., then set down 27 in a row. In other words, he was perfect the rest of the way against the high-scoring Rockies in a 3-0 win.
