Carlos Rodón was one slider away from perfection.

On Wednesday, the White Sox beginning pitcher pitched a no-hitter, however not since Armando Galarraga’s imperfect recreation has there been such a heartbreaking closing inning: Whereas Rodon ended up with the no-no, he plunked catcher Roberto Perez on the foot on a slider that simply acquired away from him, ending the proper recreation bid with one out within the ninth.

Rodón, although, wasn’t too damaged up about it.

“All you are able to do is chuckle about it. It wasn’t meant to be,” he mentioned after the sport. “… I’d have let it hit me, too.”

Perez admitted to figuring out there was a no-hitter within the works, however was seemingly unaware that an ideal recreation was within the making.

“To be trustworthy, I actually did not assume he had an ideal recreation till I acquired hit,” he mentioned after the sport. “I assumed he had a no-hitter happening, however I actually did not assume he had an ideal recreation. So, it is laborious, man. I am not gonna attempt to stand there and get hit, you understand?”

Nicely, stand there and get hit is strictly what Perez did, and the Cleveland catcher acquired some criticism for not making an effort to get out of the way in which.

In any case, Rodón enters the document books with the second no-hitter of the 2021 season — and he enters followers’ reminiscence banks for an additional brutal brush with baseball immortality.
