NEW YORK — Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes was removed after eight no-hit innings Sunday against the New York Yankees.
Burnes struck out seven and walked two, throwing 70 of 109 pitches for strikes before Devin Williams relieved with the score 0-0. Burnes’ pitch count was one shy of his season high and six short of his career high.
The 2021 NL Cy Young Award winner retired his first 12 hitters before walking Giancarlo Stanton on his 54th pitch. He also issued a two-out walk to rookie Everson Pereira before third baseman Andruw Monasterio made a running catch in foul territory on Oswaldo Cabrera.
The 28-year-old right-hander had not thrown a complete game in 103 big league starts.
Milwaukee has two no-hitters. Burnes combined with Josh Hader on the Brewers’ second, pitching eight innings at Cleveland on Sept. 11, 2021, while throwing 115 pitches. Milwaukee’s first no-hitter was by Juan Nieves on April 15, 1987 against the Orioles.
The Yankees have been no-hit eight times. The last was June 25, 2022, in the Bronx in a combined effort by Houston’s Cristian Javier, Hector Neris and Ryan Pressly.
