Astros Throw Combined No-No Against Yankees, Red Sox Win Sixth Straight

Jonathan Grant | June 26th, 2022

The Houston Astros pulled off quite the remarkable feat on Saturday. In Yankee Stadium no less against a very good and very hot New York Yankees team: holding them without a single hit for nine innings. The pitching masterclass was started by Cristian Javier, who went seven strong innings and struck out 13 before giving way to relievers Hector Neris and Ryan Pressly. The run support came in the seventh, eighth, and ninth as they scraped one run across in each frame to go up 3-0 and conclude the first no-no of the Yankees in 19 years.

That now means the Bronx Bombers are in danger of losing the series on Sunday should they lose the fourth game against one of their heated rivals. Speaking of New York rivals, the Boston Red Sox kept on rolling on Saturday by coming from behind to down the Cleveland Guardians for a sixth consecutive win. Having gone behind 2-0 after three, they responded in the sixth with a three-run shot from Alex Verdugo that put them ahead for good. They’d eventually get a 4-2 win, further cementing their place as the hottest team currently playing in the majors. Elsewhere, the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers will go into Sunday night’s prime time affair having each won a game apiece so far in their three-game series after the Braves on 5-3 on Saturday evening. They had led 3-0 but the Dodgers roared back to tie it in the seventh and eighth before Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run blast in the bottom of the eighth to finish the scoring and give the defending World Series champions a shot to tie the season series.
