Today in White Sox History

Monday, May 24, 2010


1924 – Bill Barrett drove in three runs and Thommy Thomas picked up his fourth win of the year as the White Sox clubbed the Tigers 10-4 in Detroit.


1929 – Ted Lyons pitched all 21-innings of a 21-inning game, losing to Detroit 6-5. Lyons did not allow a run between the seventh and 21st inning.  At the time, it was the longest game every played at Comiskey Park.  


1936 – With the game tied at five in the bottom of the ninth, Rip Radcliff ripped a two-run homer to give the White Sox a dramatic 7-5 win over the Browns.


1939 – White Sox played in their first ever night game, losing in Philadelphia 4-1.


1967 – Tom McCraw hits three home runs and drives in eight as the White Sox beat the Twins 14-1.


1982 – Lamarr Hoyt stretched his season record to 9-0, his overall win streak to 14 and his Comiskey Park record to 16-0 with a 3-1 win over the Royals.


1994 – Down a run in the bottom of the seventh, the White Sox score three with the go-ahead runs scoring on a Lance Johnson triple as the White Sox beat the Twins 5-3.


2005 – Mark Buehrle allowed only one run over nine innings but it took extra innings for the White Sox in a 2-1 victory over the Angels. Tadahito Iguchi drove in the winning run on a double in the top of the 11th and Damaso Marte picked up the win.


Didn’t get home from a work outing tonight (okay I was playing golf — bad golf no less) but liked what I hard on the radio while driving home.

Rios continues to put together All Star numbers. Ever since Pierre started finding his way on base, the team has improved a little. This team needs to get through this trip and survive the weekend in St. Pete. The upcoming interleague slate gives the Sox an opportunity to make up some lost ground if they can continue their dominance of the NL.

I’m trying to remain positive because I would expect no less from Ozzie, the staff and the team. The hole is significant but you can’t get out of a hole without doing some climbing and the Sox do have some bulldogs — Danks, Peavy, Konerko, Buerhle, and most of the bullpen — that are the kind of guys that are capable of getting the team in the right direction.

Peavy can put things in motion Tuesday night in Cleveland.

Hey TC. Like you, I was only able to catch the last part of the game, just in time to see Rios launch his 9th of the season. We may be down, but we are definitely not out of this yet. If everyone keeps improving like they have the last few weeks, we should be ready to tear it up during the summer months. Let’s take Round 2 tonight.

Also, I just wanted to note that while I’m not much of a hockey fan, I’ll be pulling for the Blackhawks to win the cup. So, Go White Sox and Go Blackhawks!

I’m bummed that I don’t have a twitter account to help with Wednesday’s Mascot Twitter Contest. Now, If I could TEXT “Go White Sox” To SouthPaw then I would gladly comply, but I don’t think texts will work, only tweets! Eh, such is life.
Anyhooo! At least the boys seem to be coming alive a bit, I like to see them at least givin it a fight! ya know?
I had a dream that the White Sox swept the Indians and didn’t lose another game all season! I wish, I wish, I wish! LOL
Good Luck Guys! I know you can dig yourselves out of this hole with a lil more effort! So that at the very least we can land up in 3rd place…….AT THE VERY LEAST!!! So what’d’ya
say guys? Can I get a few more stellar series’ out of ya?
Runnin right thru the NL would help, now wouldn’t it?
