Belated congratulations to White Sox left-hander Mark Buehre on career win No. 150.
This from the Elias Sports Bureau:
Paul Konerko hit two home runs and Mark Buehrle threw 6⅔ scoreless innings in Chicago’s win against Baltimore on Monday night. It was the seventh time that Buehrle earned a win and Konerko hit multiple home runs in the same game, breaking a tie with Adam Wainwright and Albert Pujols for the most such games together by current teammates.
Buehrle and Konerko’s total is now the highest for any two major-league teammates since Jim Kaat won seven games in which Tony Oliva hit at least two homers for the Twins, from 1964 to 1971.
White Sox general manager Ken Williams on recalling 9/11 on word of the death of Osama bin Laden:
“If I close my eyes and think about it, I can still smell that smell from that day. It’s something I will never forget.”
