The White Sox avoided being no-hit in the ninth inning again

The White Sox have no intention of being no-hit this season. They just so happen to wait until the ninth inning to show it.

For the second time this season, in Sunday's 12-0 loss to the Tigers, Rick Renteria's group was no-hit through eight innings. And for the second time they avoided becoming the second team to be no-hit this season with a hit in their final frame.

Tim Anderson delivered a double to the right-center gap with no outs in the ninth inning to break up Matt Boyd's chance at history. Boyd had retired 26 White Sox batters to that point, with a Rob Brantly walk in the third inning their only base runner.

On July 9 the White Sox had been no-hit through eight innings in Colorado, and rookie starter Kyle Freeland retired the first batter he faced in the ninth. But a Melky Cabrera single to left broke up that almost-no-no.

The Sox still haven't been no-hit since May 3, 2011, when Francisco Liriano did at U.S. Cellular Field.

Ricky's boys truly don't quit.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
