Jacoby Ellsbury, Aaron Cook Combine to Break Up Alex Cobb’s No-Hitter With Time-Honored Moves (Video)

If a pitcher is going to throw a no-hitter, he's going to need a couple of things to go his way.

Alex Cobb was doing his best to get one Monday, but Jacoby Ellsbury's two-run home run in the sixth inning quickly put an end to that idea and ensured that Cobb didn't catch the breaks he needed.

As NESN Nation's Dan Duquette points out, however, Red Sox starter Aaron Cook could also deserve some credit for Ellsbuy's blast. See why in the video above.
