This Date In Sox History

Tuesday, May 12, 2010

1927 – Bud Clancy picked up two RBI which proved to be the difference in the White Sox 5-4 win over the Senators.   Ted Blankenship picked up the win allowing just three earned runs over 9.0 IP.

1937 – The White Sox scored early and often in their 13-5 win over the Senators.  Luke Appling collected two RBI and three runs in the win.

1953 – Two 10th-inning walks issued by Ellis Kinder eventually scored as the White Sox beat the Red Sox 9-7 in Boston.  The defeat charged to Kinder snapped an 18-game win streak he had over Chicago.

1967 – Joel Horlen threw 8.1 IP of shutout baseball and Bob Locker picked up the save in the White Sox 1-0 win over the Angels.  J.C. Martin drove in the only run of the game.

1974 – Wilbur Wood picked up his fifth win of the year and Pat Kelly drove in two runs in the Sox 5-4 win at Texas.

1981 – The White Sox used five runs in the first two innings to top Cleveland 7-4 at home.  Steve Trout picked up the win.

1993 – Wilson Alvarez stayed perfect, going to 4-0 as the White Sox beat the Mariners 6-5 in Seattle.   Craig Grebeck, Ellis Burks and Robin Ventura all homered while Roberto Hernandez picked up the save.

2005 – Jon Garland moved to 7-0 on the season as the first place White Sox topped the first place Orioles 3-2.  A.J. Pierzynski homered while Juan Uribe and Aaron Rowand each had a RBI.


Just want to say, thank you Blue Jays for putting Alex Rios on waivers last year and allowing the White Sox to acquire him. And, after the iffy performance after we got him last season, he sure has been a gift this year.

I’m with you there, MariE. He’s definitely heated up after how he ended last season.

Hi All~

I agree – great win last night. I get Tweets from Joe Cowley and Chris Rongey – both said the Twinkies did Target Field right.

Also, I read Zack Hample’s blog (thanks to MariA pointing it out last year) and he did a great job exploring and showing Target Field. Check out this:

He was there a couple days so scroll down for more information! It’s a pretty good read.
