Two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber pitched a no-hitter for the New York Yankees in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory against the Texas Rangers, Kluber’s former team.
Released after a season-ending shoulder injury, Kluber left the Rangers to join New York in January 2021.
For the first time in his 11-year MLB career, Kluber has completed a no-hitter. The no-hitter is also the 12th recorded in New York Yankees franchise history.
The Yankees are 24-19, inching closer to the Rays in the fight for third in the AL East.
The Rangers slide to 19-26 at the bottom of the AL West.
The 35-year-old pitcher gave his typically stoic perspective after the record-setting performance, reflecting on the injuries leading up to the night:
Wednesday night’s no-hitter will be the sixth of the MLB season, most recently accomplished by Spencer Turnbull’s no-hitter for the Tigers against the Mariners.
The record for most no-hitters in a major-league season is eight, in 1884. The modern-era record is seven. With several months remaining before October’s playoff excitement, we may be witnessing a season for the history books.
