The New York Yankees’ Corey Kluber no-hit the Texas Rangers Wednesday night, the second MLB no-hitter in as many days.
Kluber struck out nine and walked one at Globe Life Field as the Yankees topped the Rangers 2-0. His effort follows Tuesday’s no-hitter by the Detroit Tigers Spencer Turnbill — and both pitchers hail from Alabama.
It was the first Yankees no-no since David Cone’s perfecto.
Dirk Lammers is a veteran journalist who began rooting for the New York Mets in the early-1970s when the team’s no no-hitter count was barely 2,000 games old. Lammers has since turned his research into Baseball’s No-Hit Wonders: More Than a Century of Pitching’s Greatest Feats (Unbridled Books) and NoNoHitters.com, where he maintains the Internet's largest archive of no-hitter information.
