In breaking MLB news, Carlos Rodon of the Chicago White Sox threw a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians tonight in Chicago. Rodon, 28, struck out seven and threw a total of 114 pitches in his gem, an 8-0 White Sox victory. It was just Rodon’s second start of the season, as he was scratched from his scheduled start on Monday, due to stomach issues.
Breaking MLB News: Almost Perfect
Rodon’s no-hitter is the second this season. Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter for the San Diego Padres last Friday. He matches the gem pitched by Sox teammate Lucas Giolito last year. The last perfect game in White Sox history was thrown by Philip Humber on April 21, 2012, in Seattle. Mark Buehrle also threw one on July 23rd, 2009. Rodon had a perfect game going into the ninth but hit a batter with one out. He went on to get the next two hitters to complete the gem.
