Kluber needed just 101 pitches (71 strikes) and retired Willie Calhoun on a groundball to Gleyber Torres to clinch the win and the no-no. The Yankees’ sole offense came from Tyler Wade’s RBI triple and DJ LeMahieu’s sacrifice fly in the sixth inning.
Corey Kluber becomes the first Yankees pitcher to throw a no-hitter since David Cone tossed a perfect game back in 1999. Additionally, he is the first Yankee to throw a no-hitter on the road since Allie Reynolds did so against Cleveland in 1951.
