Yankees’ Eovaldi takes no-hitter into 7th vs. Rangers

The New York Yankees’ Nathan Eovaldi took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Texas Rangers on Monday night before losing his bid on a lead-off seventh-inning single by Nomar Mazara.

Eovaldi, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound right-hander, attended the same Texas high school as Nolan Ryan – Alvin High School. And Eovaldi wears No. 30 for the Yankees, the number Ryan wore when he threw four no-nos for the California Angels.

But it wasn’t to be on Monday night. Eovaldi gave up two hits in the seventh but kept the Rangers from notching a run. The Yankees went on to win by a score of 3-1.

The Yankees’ last no-hitter was 17 years ago, when David Cone threw a perfect game at Yankee Stadium against the Montreal Expos.

The last time the Rangers fell victim to a no-hitter was in 2008, when the Chicago White Sox’s Mark Buehrle no-hit Texas on Wednesday, April 18, 2007, at U.S. Cellular Field.
