There was history at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Houston Astros tossed a combined no-hitter and blanked the New York Yankees, 3-0. This is the first time that the Yankees have been no-hit since 2003, and the eighth time in franchise history.
New York’s offense just could not get anything going against Astro’s starter Cristian Javier. The right-hander tossed seven hitless innings while striking out a career-high 13 batters and allowing just one baserunner. Hector Neris and Ryan Pressly followed Javier to complete the no-hitter.
Gerrit Cole started on the mound for the Yankees and fired seven innings of one-run ball while striking eight. The only run he surrendered came in the seventh when J.J. Matijevic crushed one into the second deck in right.
Michael King allowed a solo home run to Jose Altuve in the eighth. Lucas Luetge gave up an RBI single in the ninth.
The Yankees will try to snap their two-game skid on Sunday afternoon and split the four-game series with Nestor Cortes on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 1:35 p.m.
