White Sox’ Carlos Rodón Throws No-Hitter Against The Cleveland Indians

Videos by OutKick

White Sox flame-throwing starter Carlos Rodón just completed a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians that was nearly a perfect game. Rodón unfortunately lost perfection with one out in the ninth when he hit Indians catcher Roberto Perez with a slider.

Still, it was a monster performance from Carlos Rodon. Here’s the final out:

The Chicago White Sox are starting to make a habit out of no-hitters. Ace starter Lucas Giolito threw one just last year, and long-time White Sox lefty Mark Buehrle threw two of his own, once in 2007 and once in 2009.

If you watched the final inning of tonight’s game, you saw that Rodón still had extra juice on his heater. He repeatedly lit up the gun with 99 mph fastballs until he finally got it done.

And to no one’s surprise, there was ANOTHER epic defensive play that saved the no-hitter. This time, it was from the glove of last year’s AL MVP Jose Abreu:

No idea how these games always include a play like this, but it has to happen. It’s science.

Anyways, congratulations to Carlos Rodón on an incredible performance that may throw the Sox back on track to an AL Central Division title.

  1. I don’t watch MLB anymore and I wont until Rob Manfred gives up his position as commissioner to an African American or transgender. I will then continue to boycott baseball until at least half the teams in the league have an African American or transgender GM and manager. I also want to see half of the coaching staff of each team comprised of women. Umpires you ask? I believe 90% should be a mix of women, people of color and transgender. MLB should be sponsoring this diversity at their umpire school with free tuition. These stadiums should be empty and sponsors should pull out of MLB until this equity is met. Also, you should no longer have to show ID when picking up or purchasing tickets or for any MLB related event. On a side note, no hitters have been watered down for years in my opinion.
