128 pitches later, the first no-hitter of the 2014 MLB season is in the books. Josh Beckett of the Los Angeles Dodgers finished the first no-hitter of his career in their 6-0 road win over Philadelphia. "I was joking about it because I was waiting for them to get a hit. You don't think at this point of your career that you're going to do that. I just don't feel that my stuff is good enough to do that. I'm probably as hard on myself as anybody," said Beckett after the 321st start of his career. Beckett has had an outstanding run, but and now he's finally completed one of the game's most elusive milestones. For the Dodgers, it marks their first franchise no-hitter since 1996.

Shifting gears, the Western Conference Finals took a turn last night as the Oklahoma City Thunder bounced back against San Antonio. After dropping the first two games of the series, the Thunder thrived on Serge Ibaka's return and controlled the pace throughout. Ibaka had 15 points in his first game back of the Conference Finals, while Russell Westbrook led the way with 26. Tuesday night, OKC will be looking to rebound from a 2-1 deficit as they play host for Game 4 at 9PM.

Find out what Beckett wore for his no-no, which kicks shined on the hardwood, and who excelled in the first round of the French Open in the gallery above.
