No-hitter after 5 innings vs Astros day. via Yankee Hitless

NEW YORK ( Associated Press) – Houston Astros starter Jose Urquidi bowled five hitless innings against the Yankees on Sunday, a day after a combined two relievers on a no-hitter against teammate Cristian Javier and baseball’s top team.

The Yankees have had no hits since the eighth inning of Friday night’s 3-1 loss, a span of 15 innings. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is their longest drought in at least 70 years.

The Six Astros teamed for one at the old Yankee Stadium on June 11, 2003, in a no-hit to New York before Saturday.

Urquidy scored two runs and scored three runs on 69 pitches.

DJ LeMahieu has come closest to the hit on Sunday, but he was robbed by shortstop Jeremy Pea, who returned from the injured list after missing time with a left thumb issue. Pea went deep into the hole for LeMahieu’s grounder and left a long throw to first base from in the fourth inning.

Urquidy allowed his first baserunner when Anthony Rizzo walked into the fourth with two outs. Giancarlo Stanton followed with a sharp lineout in right field.

Josh Donaldson advanced to fifth, but Gleber Torres dropped out and Aaron Hicks entered a double play at the end of an innings.

Houston is looking to win a four-match series against the major league-leading Yankees. The New York Hitters were overwhelmed during the first three games of the series, four runs in Thursday’s 7-6 win, save for a ninth-innings rally. Kick off that inning, and New York entered for 87 (.080) on Sunday 7 against the Astros pitching.

New York have lost consecutive games for the first time since May 28-29. The Yankees entered Sunday with 361 runs, second only to the Mets in the Majors. His 52-20 record matches the fifth-best 72-game start in the Majors since 1930.

Astros manager Dusty Baker credited Houston’s pitching dominance as the key to frequent strike-throws. Of course, this is typical of Urquidy. He entered Sunday with 1.74 walks per nine innings.

No team has been a no-hit in consecutive games, although the 1917 Chicago White Sox was no-hit by the St. Louis Browns on consecutive days. The second gem came in the second game of the double header.

Driven by a leadoff homer from Jose Altuve of Nestor Cortés, the Astros took a 3–0 lead.
