White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon throws no-hitter against Cleveland after losing perfect game in ninth inning - CBS Sports

The perfect game club nearly had a new member.

White Sox starter Carlos Rodon has thrown a no-hitter and he was perfect through 8 1/3 innings.

"On a toe ball," Rodon said after the game when asked where his head was at the moment, alluding to where the pitch hit Perez.

Rodon mentioned after the game that once that ball was caught, he had a feeling something special was happening.

Rodon is now the second pitcher of 2021 to throw a no-hitter after Padres right-hander Joe Musgrove did so last Friday.

Notable here is both pitchers were just a hit-by-pitch away from a perfect game. .

"Take a hike," he said with a laugh when asked if someone were to tell him during his rehab that he'd be back and throw a no-hitter. 

The 28-year-old slugger has now started 10 games in his career and collected at least three hits in a game four times

Mercedes and the White Sox's offensive destruction of Plesac would've been the main story here, but Rodon stole the show instead. 

Rodon joins Bob Keegan, Joel Horlen, Joe Cowley, Wilson Alvarez, Mark Buehrle (twice), Philip Humber and Lucas Giolito as post-integration White Sox pitchers to throw a no-hitter, individually. 

There have been just 23 perfect games thrown in baseball history and Rodon nearly made it 24

Less than a year after the White Sox released him, Rodon has thrown a no-hitter.
