 โšพ๏ธYankees: The Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 2โ€“0 last night thanks to Corey Kluberโ€™s no-hitter โ€” the first thrown by a Yank since 1999 (!!!) and only the 12th in franchise history. 

  • The sweetest part? The Rangers traded Kluber to the Yanks this offseason after an injury limited him to only one inning on the mound all of last season. Love a comeback story. 
  • And if you just canโ€™t get enough of the pinstripes, get excited for the upcoming Derek Jeter documentary series produced by legend Spike Lee. Like The Last Dance...but way better. 

๐Ÿ’Islanders: After losing 2โ€“1 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, the best-of-seven series is all tied up at 1-1. The good news? Islander goalie Semyon Varlamov finally returned to the ice. The bad news? He was rusty...it took just three minutes for the Pens to score. Sigh. 

  • The Isles will be looking for redemption when they return to Nassau Coliseum for Game 3 tonight at 7 p.m. ET. 

โšพ๏ธMets: While the Metsโ€™ series with the Atlanta Braves ended with a 5โ€“4 loss last night, the aforementioned damage to Pillarโ€™s face will last much longer โ€” the 95 mph fastballโ€™s impact caused multiple fractures in his nose. Thankfully, the beloved veteran said on Tuesday that he feels good and will be back doing what he loves soon enough. 

๐Ÿ€Liberty: The Liberty beat the Minnesota Lynx 86โ€“75 on Tuesday, earning their third straight victory (which is already more than their total number of wins last season). Besides Ionescuโ€™s aforementioned record-breaking performance, our girl Betnijah Laney held it down again with 20 points. The Nets may have a Big Three, but the Libs got a damn good duo.
