Carlos Rodón of the Chicago White Sox lost his bid for a second no-hitter this season when Detroit's Eric Haase doubled to deep left field with one out in the seventh inning on Sunday. Rodón no-hit the Cleveland Indians on April 14, losing his bid for a perfect game on a hit batter with one out in the ninth inning. Haase doubled on the eighth pitch of his at-bat and later scored on a sacrifice fly to get the Tigers within 4-1.
Two-time All-Star pitcher Jim "Mudcat" Grant has died. The Cleveland Indians, one of his former teams, said Grant died peacefully in Los Angeles on Friday night. Grant was the first Black 20-game winner in American League history when he went a career-best 21-7 for the Minnesota Twins in 1965.
After making history with the Twins, Grant co-authored "Black Aces" celebrating baseball's Black 20-game winners.
