New York Yankees pitcher Corey Kluber threw a no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees defeated the Rangers 2-0 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

Kluber — who signed a one-year, $11 million deal in the off-season — threw the sixth no-hitter in Major League Baseball this season. It was the second straight day with a no-hitter.

“It was a lot of fun, I think it was a special night,” Kluber said. “I’ve never been part of one, witnessed one, yet alone thrown one.”

Kluber threw a no-hitter against the team he played for during the 2020 season. His time with the Rangers was limited due to an injury.

He is the 12th Yankees pitcher to throw a no-hitter. Kluber’s no-hitter was the first since David Cone’s no-hitter in July 1999 against the Montréal Expos.

Allie Reynolds is the only Yankees pitcher to throw two no-hitters. George Mogridge, Sad Sam Jones, Monte Pearson, Don Larson, Dave Righetti, Jim Abbott, Dwight Gooden, and David Wells also threw no-hitters for the team.

This was the Yankees’ first road no-hitter since 1951 when Reynolds no-hit the Cleveland Indians.

“I had butterflies in that ninth inning,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I’m getting a little emotional now, even just getting to witness that was really, really special. And to see his teammates and the excitement of everyone for Corey and just the excitement for themselves being a part of such a thing. What a performance.”
