Lucas Giolito threw the first no-hitter of the MLB season as the Chicago White Sox shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0.
Giolito posted his first career no-hitter on Tuesday, walking one and striking out 13 batters after throwing 101 pitches.

Per STATS, he is first pitcher to have a qualifying season with a 6.00-plus ERA and then later throw a no-hitter in his career since ERA became an official stat in 1913.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco Giants extended their winning streak to seven games courtesy of a 10-8 walk-off victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers after 11 innings.
