Lucas Giolito Throws No-Hitter For White Sox
Watch out! The White Sox are playing some of the best baseball in the league right now.
White Sox fans, already riding high after taking 2 of 3 from the Cubs last weekend and Jose Abreu seemingly unable to hit anything but home runs:
Then Lucas Giolito stepped up to the mound Tuesday night for a game against the Pirates and made history.
The White Sox hurler tossed the first no-hitter for the south siders since Philip Humber threw a perfect game back in April of 2012.
He faced only one above the minimum number of batters and only allowed a leadoff walk in the 4th, while striking out 13 and throwing 101 pitches over 9 innings.
The win pulls the White Sox into a tie for 2nd place in the AL Central with the Indians, 1.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins.
At 18-12 the Sox are officially half way done with this 60-game abbreviated season, the next 30 look to be a wild ride. Strap in, it's fun to have sports back again.
