The Astros won a rare joint no-hitter against the Yankees


With a combined no-hitter, the Astros defeated the Yankees.

Few teams can claim to have no-hit the New York Yankees, but the Houston Astros can now.

Starting pitcher Cristian Javier and backup Hector Neris teamed to throw a no-hitter as the contest came to a close. In a dramatic game on Saturday afternoon in New York, the team defeated the Yankees 3-0.

When did the Yankees last go without a hit?

That says a lot about the talent in New York and even more about the talent in Houston this season given that the Yankees have only been no-hit seven times since 1900 and once since 1958.

Ironically, the Yankees were last no-hit by the Houston Astros in a combined game in 2003.
