Carlos Rodón Throws No-Hitter, Loses Perfect Game Bid in Ninth Inning

Just over four months ago, Carlos Rodón was non-tendered a contract by the White Sox after pitching just 7 2/3 innings in 2020.

Rodón came two outs away from MLB's 24th perfect game, which was spoiled when he hit Roberto Pérez with a pitch in an 0-2 count.

Rodón would have become the fourth White Sox pitcher to throw a perfect game, a group that includes Charlie Robertson (1922), Mark Buehrle (2009) and Philip Humber (2012).

A key play came on the leadoff batter in the ninth inning, when first baseman José Abreu fielded a slow ground ball and slid into first base just in time to beat Josh Naylor to the bag.

The last player to throw a perfect game was Félix Hernández, who accomplished the feat while pitching for the Mariners on Aug. 15, 2012.

Rodón, 26, has spent his entire career with the White Sox after the team chose him with the No.
