In the first Major League start of his young career on Saturday night, Carlos Rodon overcame some early shakiness to settle down, regain his control and overpower the Cincinnati lineup for the most part, en route to notching his first Major League victory.
Rodon tossed 108 pitches in 6 complete innings in the start, giving up 2 runs on just 4 hits. He struck out 8, while walking 4. Belying the double nickle on his back, his fastball sat in the mid to upper 90’s all night, once even tipping the gun at 99mph.
The White Sox bullpen held serve after Rodon exited, and Chicago extended its lead for the 8-2 victory.
Way to go Carlos!!! We’re sure tonight’s win is the first of many to come.
And we still miss ya….
