Not only is this the first no-hitter in White Sox history, it's the first in American League history.

Callahan struck out two and walked two en route to a Sox 3-0 win over the Tigers.


The White Sox walloped the Tigers 15-0 to give Frank Smith his first no-hitter, Chicago's second. It was the most lopsided n-hitter in history until Cubs' pitcher Jake Arrieta no-hit the Reds and won 16-0 nearly 111 years later.


Smith's second no-hitter ended in walk-off fashion. It the third White Sox no-hitter in history at this point. Smith was the first pitcher to throw multiple no-hitters.

And fun fact, it was the White Sox' second no-hitter on September 20th and all three were in September to this point.


Ed Walsh threw the first no-hitter in Comiskey Park. The White Sox beat the Red Sox 5-0 and Walsh struck out eight and walked just one batter.


Joe Benz's no-hitter helped the White Sox to a 6-1 win over the Cleveland Naps, now the Indians. Benz struck out three, walked two and one run scored thanks to a pair of Sox errors.


Eddie Cicotte was stellar during the 1917 season, leading the White Sox to a World Series championship. But no-hitter in his first game of the season set the tone from the jump.

The White Sox have to wait another 88 years for another championship.


This no-hitter from Charlie Robertson is the first perfect game in White Sox history. It was the fifth in MLB history.


Ted Lyons' no-hitter started with a walk, but he retired 27 of the next 28 batters he faced en route to a no-hitter and 6-0 win over the Red Sox.


Vern Kennedy's no-hitter gave the White Sox a 5-0 win over the Indians. Kennedy threw five strike outs and walked four batters. It was just his second season in the big leagues.


This was the first no-hitter to be thrown in Major League Baseball since Kennedy's in 1935. The White Sox beat the St. Louis Browns (now the Baltimore Orioles) 8-0. Dietrich struck out five and walked just two.


Bob Keegan ends a 20-year drought for the White Sox in no-hitters. It's the longest stretch between no-hitters in White Sox team history.


Joe Horlen struck out four batters en route to a 6-0 win over the Tigers. It was the first game of a double header and in the middle of a tight AL Pennant race. The White Sox were tied with the Tigers, the Twins and Red Sox for first place.


This is the only combined no-hitter in White Sox history and a close game, the White Sox beat the Athletics 2-1. Blue Moon Odom and Francisco Barrios combined to walk 11 batters in total, the most in a White Sox no-hitter. An error drove in the A's lone run.


Another no-hitter where the opponents, the Angels in this case, scored a run. Cowley walked seven batters, three in a single inning before a Reggie Jackson sac-fly drove in the lone run.

Cowley would never win another game in his career, losing his next four starts in 1987 for the Phillies.


What makes Wilson Alvarez's no-hitter stand out, it was just his second career start. Alvarez struck out seven and walked FIVE, leading the White Sox to a 7-0 win over the Orioles.


Mark Buehrle's first no-hitter, and the first at Guaranteed Rate Field (then known as U.S. Cellular Field). It also ended a 16-year drought for no-hitters, the second longest drought between no-hitters in team history.

And he was nearly perfect, walking a single batter.


This time, Buehrle was perfect. It was the 18th perfect game in MLB history and second in White Sox history. That's 87 years between perfect games for the White Sox.

And who can forget that Dewayne Wise catch on the warning track in the ninth inning.


Philip umber throws the third perfect game in White Sox history and 21st in MLB history. The White Sox' three perfect games ties the Yankees for the most perfect games by a franchise.

And he did it with only 96 pitches.


And of course, Lucas Giolito. The only White Sox pitcher in history to throw more than 10 strikeouts in a no-hitter.


In heartbreaking fashion, Carlos Rodón lost the perfect game bid with two outs to go in the game. And after José Abreu made an amazing play to get the ninth inning's first out. But Rodón struck out the next batter
