June 16, 2010
As we start to count down to the Crosstown series here at U.S. Cellular Field, we are going to count down to the best White Sox moments against the Cubs at home. The list is totally in fun and totally subjective, just as lask week’s list of top moments at Wrigley was, so feel free to offer your thoughts and your own Top 10 Sox moments along the way …
Moment No. 10
June 9, 2000 – Sosa Scares, but Sox Win – White Sox 6, Cubs 5 (14 innings)
Ray Durham’s single off Daniel Garibay with one out in the 14th inning scored Herbert Perry with the winning run. The victory was the fifth straight and 17th in 24 games for the White Sox, who played their longest game at Comiskey Park since a 15-inning contest on 6/2/95 vs. Detroit. Sammy Sosa’s two-run homer off Keith Foulke in the ninth forced extra innings, but Bill Simas (3.0 IP) and Jesus Pena combined to hold the Cubs hitless over the final 5.0 IP, with Pena earning his first career victory.
