White Sox's Carlos Rodón throws no-hitter against Indians

Working quickly in short sleeves with the top of his jersey unbuttoned on a cool Chicago night, Rodón threw 75 of his 114 pitches for strikes. The No. 3 pick in the 2014 amateur draft out of North Carolina State struck out seven in his first career shutout and second complete game.

Rodón was perfect before he plunked Roberto Pérez on his back foot with an 0-2 slider with one out in the ninth. An incredulous Rodón looked on in almost bewilderment as Pérez made his way to first.
