Pinstripe Alley Podcast Ep. 128: Kluber’s No-No & the Shutout Streak

Corey Kluber threw a no-hitter and sparked an utterly dominant run of Yankees starting pitching. We endorse it.

MLB: New York Yankees at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, we published our latest podcast on Wednesday morning. Since then, the Yankees’ starting pitchers have yet to allow a single run — a remarkable scoreless stretch of 35 straight innings. That’s been the secret sauce to the Yankees’ six-game winning streak, which helped them take three of four against the Rangers and then sweep the team that was the best in the AL heading into the weekend: the White Sox.

The highlight of it all was, of course, Corey Kluber’s no-hitter in Texas, which was the Yankees’ first since 1999 and just the 12th in franchise history. So you’ll forgive us if we go on at length about Kluber for his outstanding effort, in which he never looked like he broke a sweat. Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery also earned praise for their dominant outings against Chicago. Thanks mostly to Gleyber Torres and Aaron Judge, the offense was able to make these gems count.

We also ask the position players to stop running into outs on the bases, sigh deeply about Aaron Hicks likely being lost for the season (and Miguel Andújar’s defense), and then wrap things up with “Meet a Baby Bomber” — featuring pitching prospect Luis Gil and outfielder Steven Sensley — and the Yankee and Mitre of the Week.

You can listen to the show on the web player below, or on any of your preferred podcast apps — to name a few, we’re on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, PlayerFM, and iHeartRadio.
