Mel Parnell, a two-time All-Star (1949, ’51) who tossed the 11th no-hitter in Red Sox history, died after a long battle with cancer at 89. Parnell played his entire 10-year career ('47-'56) with Boston. He is the franchise all-time leader in wins by a southpaw with 123, & fourth all-time in wins overall behind Cy Young, Roger Clemens and Tim Wakefield. Twice, he was a 20-game winner (1949, ’51). Lifetime, Parnell had a 123-75 record with a 3.50 ERA in 289 games (232 starts).
