COrey Kluber had the sixth recorded no-hitter this season in the majors and the second in two nights. for the New York Yankees to beat the Texas Rangers 2-0 on Wednesday night.
The 35-year-old right-hander, a two-time AL Cy Young recipient, walked Charlie Culberson in the third inning. If not for that, he would have gotten the perfect game.
Kluber polished his pitching gem one night after Spencer Turnbull hit a double zero against the Seattle Mariners. The last time there had been no-hitter games on consecutive days was in 1969.
In his ninth start for the Yankees, Kluber (4-2) struck out 10 and threw 101 pitches, 71 of which were strikes. Last season, he was pitching on the mound for the Rangers when he got hurt after just one inning of work with the team.
