Buehrle 1, Karma 0

Late in the broadcast of the Texas-Chicago White Sox game Wednesday night, FSN's Josh Lewin brought up the story of how White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle accused the Rangers of cheating in a game a couple of seasons ago in Arlington.

Nothing ever came of it, but Buerhle exacted his revenge on the Rangers on Wednesday night, tossing his first career no-hitter. Along the way there were the requisite no-hitter-saving defensive plays from Joe Crede, Jermaine Dye and others, but it was Buehrlle who did the heavy lifting.

And given the animosity that seemed to exist between the Rangers and the left-hander, it appears Buehrle not only denied Texas' powerful lineup a hit, he also kept the baseball gods at bay during one of the most incredible feats a pitcher can produce.
