Yankees' Corey Kluber tosses sixth no-hitter of MLB season

By , Audacy Sports

New York Yankees pitcher Corey Kluber no-hit the Rangers, one of his former teams, in Texas on Monday night, marking the second consecutive day with a no-hitter, and the sixth no-no on the young MLB season.

Kluber, 35, needed just 101 pitches to set aside the Rangers. He issued only one walk in the dominant performance. The three-time All-Star was mobbed by his teammates upon the final out, a groundout to second baseman DJ LeMahieu. It was the Yankees' first no-hitter since David Cone's perfect game in 1999.

Kluber, a two-time Cy Young winner, had barely pitched the past two seasons, tossing just one inning for the Rangers last season before he was lost to injury. In 2019, his last season with the Cleveland Indians, he was limited to 35 innings.

On Tuesday, Spencer Turnbull of the Detroit Tigers no-hit the Seattle Mariners, joining John Means, Wade Miley, Carlos Rodon, and Joe Musgrove in tossing no-hitters so far this season.
