Yankees walk off Brewers in extras after being no-hit for 10 1/3 innings

The New York Yankees didn’t get a hit until the 11th inning of Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, but it didn’t matter as the Bronx Bombers won a wild contest 4-3 in the 13th frame thanks to a walk-off hit from catcher Kyle Higashioka.

Brewers ace Corbin Burnes made it through eight no-hit innings at Yankee Stadium but was removed in order to protect a scoreless tie.

Relievers Devin Williams and Abner Uribe maintained the no-no through 10 innings, combining to strike out four while allowing one walk.

Outfielder Sal Frelick made an incredible catch for the final out of the 10th, leaping into the wall and colliding with center fielder Joey Wiemer to rob Anthony Volpe of what would’ve been the walk-off hit. Wiemer was bloodied on the play but recovered and walked off the field.

However, protecting a one-run lead in the 11th, Joel Payamps allowed the first Yankees hit on a game-tying double from Oswaldo Cabrera. That sent it to the 12th tied 1-1.

The Brewers scored two runs in the 12th and appeared to have the game locked up before left-hander Andrew Chafin allowed a game-tying, two-run blast to Giancarlo Stanton. Higashioka followed with the game-winner an inning later.

The last time an opponent no-hit the Yankees was when the Houston Astros threw a combined no-hitter against them on June 25, 2022.
