Finally, Josh Beckett's no-hitter can be explained.

Beckett has been awful over the past few years, and most fans (particularly in the Boston area) have just assumed that Beckett was done as a front-of-the-rotation pitcher.

This year, however, he has been surprisingly solid. And on Sunday, he actually became the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter in 2014, shutting down the hapless Philadelphia Phillies.

So how did he do it?

The answer is clear. He made a deal with the devil. And the price for his rekindled career was A.J. Ellis' ankle.

While celebrating Beckett's no-hitter, Ellis sprained his ankle, and has now been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

So that explains it. The only possible explanation for Josh Beckett's sudden resurgence is that he has sacrificed A.J. Ellis' ankle to the baseball gods.
