CHICAGO (AP) – Lucas Giolito of the Chicago White Sox has thrown a no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Giolito struck out 13, walked one and threw a total of 101 pitches Tuesday night.
An All-Star last year, the right-hander retired the first nine Pittsburgh hitters before walking Erik Gonzalez to start the fourth.
Giolito pitched the 19th no-hitter in White Sox history and first since Philip Humber threw a perfect game at Seattle in 2012. This was the seventh time the Pirates have been held hitless, previously by Washington’s Max Scherzer in 2015.
The Pirates, hitting a collective .229 this season, brought the majors’ worst record into the matchup.
Giolito’s performance was the first no-hitter of 2020.
The White Sox won the game 4-0.
