New York Yankees’ Corey Kluber throws 6th no-hitter in MLB this season, stopping Texas Rangers

New York Yankees right-hander Corey Kluber threw the sixth no-hitter this season in Major League Baseball on Wednesday night, striking out nine in a 2-0 win against the Texas Rangers.

The 35-year-old’s 101-pitch gem came one night after Detroit Tigers right-hander Spencer Turnbull accomplished the feat against the Seattle Mariners.

It was the Yankees’ first no-hitter since July 18, 1999, when David Cone threw a perfect game against the Montreal Expos.

“It’s all kind of emotions. It’s excitement, obviously, but also relief because it’s over,” Kluber said after the game on YES Network. “We were fortunate in that they hit them right at people.”

Including Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series, the Yankees have thrown 12 no-hitters. This was the club’s first road no-hitter since July 12, 1951, when Allie Reynolds did it at Cleveland.
