Corey Kluber tosses first Yankees no-no in two decades
It was a night to remember for Yankees fans, but even more so for their new pitcher, Corey Kluber. The "Klu-Bot" went the distance in Arlington against the Rangers, throwing nine innings of shutout, no-hit baseball en route to the sixth no-hitter of the 2021 season already. This helped the Yankees to win their series against the Rangers 2-1. Kluber made just seven starts in the past two seasons combined, so many were initially alarmed when the Yankees decided to sign him to a one year, $11 million deal in the offseason. However, if his injury issues are behind him and he continues to pitch like his old self, the tandem of him and Gerrit Cole atop the Yankees' rotation has to be one of the best in all of Major League Baseball. Kluber's no-hitter is the first for the Yankees since David Wells' perfecto in 1998, and the last three seasons where a Yankee has thrown a no-hitter, the Bronx Bombers have won the World Series each of those times.
