Apr 15, 2021 1:07 AM

White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon came two outs away from a perfect game but threw the first no-hitter of his career in an 8-0 win over the Indians on Wednesday night.

Rodon, 28, threw 114 pitches in the complete game, looking as strong at the end of the contest as he did at the beginning. One of his final pitches hit 98.8 mph -- the hardest he's thrown a ball since 2016.

"I can't believe it," Rodon said on the game telecast afterwards. "It'll be hard to top this one."

Joe Musgrove Tosses First No-Hitter In Padres' History

Apr 10, 2021 1:37 AM

A long-time member of the Friar Faithful, Joe Musgrove knew all about San Diego's no-hitter history.

Musgrove, the 28-year-old pitcher who grew up just down the road in El Cajon, California, threw the Padres' first no-hitter — in the team's 8,206th regular-season game — allowing only one baserunner in a 3-0 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

San Diego had been the only active MLB franchise without a no-hitter.

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally won their World Series, the first for the franchise since 1988 and the first in three tries for them over the past four years.

The Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 on Tuesday night at Globe Life Field behind a stellar effort from their bullpen, with six relievers combining for a 7⅓ scoreless innings after starter Tony Gonsolin gave up a solo home run to Rays rookie sensation Randy Arozarena in the first.

Corey Seager achieved a rare October double, becoming Most Valuable Player of the World Series after earning the honor for the League Championship Series.

Padres Return To Playoffs After 14 Long Years

Sep 20, 2020 11:09 PM

After 14 long years, the San Diego Padres are back in the playoffs, this time with a cast of stars who never flinch when they get down.

The Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 7-4 on Sunday with a three-run rally in the 11th inning that included a go-ahead double by newcomer Mitch Moreland.

In one of many bizarre twists to 2020, the clincher came in the finale of a series that was moved from Seattle because of poor air quality due to wildfires, so the Mariners were considered the home team and batted last.
