ARLINGTON, Texas (WKBN) – New York Yankees’ pitcher, and former Cleveland Indians’s ace Corey Kluber threw a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Rangers on Wednesday night.

It is the sixth no-hitter in Major League Baseball this season. It is also the eighth time in MLB history that no-hitters were thrown one or fewer days apart.

Kluber struck out a total of nine batters with one walk in the win for the Yankees.

The veteran right-hander won a pair of Cy Young Awards while playing for the Indians, before being traded to Texas in December of 2019.
