About Last Night
Other than yuck, Mark Buehrle went over the 2,000 mark for IP in his career … the White Sox turned six double plays last night, setting a franchise record and tying the American League record (14th time). Buehrle became the first pitcher to induce six GIDPs since KC’s Dick Drago on 5/6/72 at Baltimore.
