We had a no-hitter Tuesday. We had a no-hitter Wednesday, so who will throw one Thursday?
On Wednesday, New York Yankees starter Corey Kluber no-hit his former team, the Texas Rangers. Kluber walked just one batter, struck out nine and was nearly perfect in the Yankees’ 2-0 win.
Here was the celebration after Kluber got the final out:

Based on the cheers, there must have been a ton of Yankees fans in attendance in Arlington.
Kluber spent last season with the Rangers, but he pitched only one inning because he got hurt in his first start. This season, the two-time Cy Young Award winner looks much sharper. He is now 4-2 with a 2.86 ERA.
This is the first Yankees no-hitter since David Cone’s perfect game in 1999. It’s Kluber’s first no-hitter, the sixth no-hitter of the MLB season, and the second time this season the Rangers have been no-hit.
New York Yankees starter Corey Kluber just finished the sixth no-hitter of the 2021 season, shutting down Texas. The first of his awesome career.
It’s the second no-hitter inside of 24 hours and brings the 2021 total to within one of the record seven for an entire season. Wow.

It’s May 19 and MLB is on pace to shatter the record for most no-hitters in a season.
Can’t anyone hit these days? Maybe it’s not such a bad idea to consider ideas such as this.
