Holliday's Stewart Perfect Through 7 in 1-Hit Shutout

Holliday High School graduate and Chicago White Sox rookie Zach Stewart took a perfect game into the eighth inning and finished with a one-hitter, as Chicago completed a doubleheader sweep of the Minnesota Twins with a 4-0 victory on Monday night.

The Twins were 21 up and 21 down against the Wichita Falls native until Danny Valencia's leadoff double in the eighth spoiled Stewart's bid to become the 21st rookie in major league history to throw a no-hitter.

The 24-year-old Stewart (2-3), whose only previous major league win came at Target Field last month, struck out nine in the first complete game of his career.

This was Stewart's fifth start for the White Sox - and eighth of his career - after being traded to Chicago by Toronto on July 27.
