Framber Valdez throws no-hitter in Astros’ win over Guardians

The Houston Astros’ Framber Valdez threw the season’s third no-hitter, blanking the Cleveland Guardians in a 2-0 win at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday night.

This is the fifth Astros no-hitter since the 2019 season and 16th in team history. The 16 no-hitters represents the most for any MLB expansion franchise added since 1961.

“Just Framber being Framber,” Astros catcher Martín Maldonado said.

Earlier this season, the New York Yankees’ Domingo Germán threw baseball’s first perfect game since 2012 and three Detroit Tigers pitchers joined forces for the first combined no-hitter in franchise history.
