Game 28. Nasty Nestor no-no’s into 8th. Yanks win 1-0.

It’s only too bad he didn’t get credit for the W.

Nasty Nestor Cortes Jr. no-hit Texas for 7 1/3 innings, and the Yankees finally got on the board in the bottom of the eighth as the Yanks beat Texas 1-0 in an afternoon makeup game from all the rain the Northeast got on Friday and Saturday.

The only run of the game came when with one out in the bottom of the eighth, Aaron Judge singled and Anthony Rizzo then doubled him home.

It wound up as a combined 2-hit shutout. The Yanks only got five hits themselves.

Rizzo RBI double (only run of game)

Cortes 7 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 4 W, 11 K. 1.41
Holmes (W, 4-0) 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 0 K. 0.61
Chapman (S, 7) 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K. 0.00

Who’d have thought Nasty Nestor would have an ERA of 1.41 after six starts, or have 42 K in 32 IP so far?

Or that of the 20-8 Yankees, the team leader in wins would be the 4 by Holmes?

Or that after 28 games, the Yanks’ ERA would be 2.50?
