THIS DATE IN WHITE SOX HISTORY: MAY 12TH

WALSH DEBUTS
1904: Hall of Famer Ed Walsh made his Major League debut in the White Sox 9-3 loss at Philadelphia. “The Big Reel” went on to win 195 games and fanned 1,732 batters in a White Sox uniform. Walsh was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1946.

EFFICIENT FABER
1915: Using just 67 pitches, future Hall of Famer Red Faber fired a complete-game in beating the Washington Senators 4-1 at Comiskey Park.

SOX FINALLY SOLVE KINDER ON A BUSY DAY
1953: After being defeated by him 18 consecutive times, the White Sox finally beat Red Sox pitcher Ellis Kinder with a 9-7 decision in 10 innings at Fenway Park. The White Sox took the lead in the 10th when Kinder walked in a pair of runs. This was the White Sox first win over Kinder since June 24, 1948. … Off the field, the White Sox purchased pitcher Sandy Consuegra from the Washiington Senators. The Cuban right-hander was an effective and sometimes spectacular contributor for the Sox over four seasons, going 29-13. His best season was 1954 when he went 16-3 and pitched in the All-Star Game.

REELING IN SOME RELIEF
1957: Bill Fischer fired 7.2 innings of relief for the win in the White Sox 5-4 triumph at Detroit. Fischer took over for starter Jack Harshman in the second after the Tigers had plated three runs. Larry Doby’s three-run homer in the seventh, his second roundtripper of the game, put Fischer in position for the well-deserved win. Fischer gave up four hits and one run with one strikeout for his first victory.

A WIN AT DODGER STADIUM
1962: A four-run third, powered by a three-run homer from Charley Smith, carried the White Sox to a 7-6 win over the Angels at Dodger Stadium. This was the White Sox first win at Dodger Stadium, the Angels home after spending their expansion year at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles.

RARE ERROR BY BROOKS HELPS
1966: The White Sox used two wild pitches, a walk and an error by the great Brooks Robinson in rallying by the Orioles 5-3 in Baltimore. Don Buford scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the fifth. In the next inning, Gene Freese singled, took second on a wild pitch, moved to third on a ground out and scored the go-ahead run when Ron Hansen reached on Robinson’s error. Jack Lamabe threw 2.1 shutout innings of relief for his first win.

RICK REICHARDT!
1971: Rick Reichardt was 7-for-10, including 5-for-5 in the nightcap, as the White Sox swept a doubleheader from Washington before 7,333 at Comiskey Park. After going 2-for-5 with an RBI in the 5-0 win in the opener, Reichardt was perfect in five at bats with a double, a homer and three RBIs in the 9-5 win in the second game.

SOX LIGHT UP JAYS
1982: Dennis Lamp improved to 3-0 with a complete-game effort in the White Sox 9-2 win at Toronto. Lamp gave up six hits and two walks with two strikeouts. He carried a four-hit shutout into the ninth before giving up a two-out homer to Dave Revering.

A GEM BY BANNY
1985: Floyd Bannister fired a seven-hitter and struck out 11 in the White Sox 4-0 win over Jack Morris and the Detroit Tigers before 21,216 at Comiskey Park.

CARLOS CASTILLO!
1998: Carlos Castillo retired all 10 batters he faced in picking up his first victory of the season in the White Sox 5-2 win over Anaheim before 13,050 at Comiskey Park. Castillo fanned four and got offensive help from Albert Belle and Greg Norton, who both homered. Belle’s two-run homer in the sixth gave the Sox the lead for good.

GARLAND: 7-0
2005: Jon Garland improved to 7-0 as the first-place White Sox topped the first-place Orioles 3-2 before 29,031 at US Cellular Field. Garland gave up two runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts in becoming the first Sox pitcher to start 7-0 since James Baldwin in 2000. The victory was also Garland’s ninth in a row dating to 2004. Home runs by A.J. Pierzynski and Juan Urbie led the Sox offense. This was the first meeting since 1964 the Sox and Orioles met owning the best records in the game.

EXTRA TIME PAYS OFF
2007: Jermaine Dye’s single in the 10th brought home pinch-runner Luis Terrero with the winning run in the Sox 5-4 victory over the Royals before 36,702 at US Cellular Field. The Sox forced extra innings with a rally with two out and nobody on in the ninth. Darin Erstad singled and then scored the tying run on a double by Juan Uribe. The heroics made a winner out of Mike MacDougal.

The World Series win in LA was in the LA Coliseum where the Dodgers played before moving to Dodger Stadium
