Chicago White Sox 0 – Colorado Rockies 10

Highlights:  Hometown rookie Kyle Freeland came within two outs of the first no-hitter by a Rockies pitcher at Coors Field before surrendering a sharp single to Melky Cabrera as Colorado beat the Chicago White Sox 10-0 on Sunday. The 24-year-old Freeland (9-7) threw 126 pitches. He was pulled immediately after the hit and left to a standing ovation. The lefty struck out a career-high nine, walked three and hit a batter. Pat Valaika drove in five runs, including a three-run homer.  Charlie Blackmon also hit a solo homer.
