Does anyone out there know the Sox record when there is more than 35000 in the stands?

I'm not sure, but I do remember a game a month ago against Detroit that was a sellout that the Sox came back to win in the bottom of the ninth

By my count their record at home with 35000+ in the stands is 5-6. They are 11-9 with more than 30000. I thought it would have been much worse! Before the awful Minnesota series at the end of July, they were 5-1 (swept by Minnesota & lost 2 - so far - to Boston here this weekend).

It seems like it would be alot worse. I guess I have been attending the wrong games. Thanks for the information.

Much like the Sox' record in one-run games, I would guess that their "big crowd" record was much better earlier in the season.

I am sure you are right.

This may be all perception unsupported by facts, but it seems to me that for the last 3-4 years the Sox always seem to lose (1) bhen on national TV, (2) when they have a full house, except for Cubs games and (3) when it's Aug. or Sept. and a win would really really help them gain on the 1st place team.

Yep. 0-3 on Sunday nights, 0-2 on Fox Game Of The Week.

They did win on both a Monday and Wednesday night in Baltimore earlier in games telecast on ESPN, although people in Chicago couldn't see those feeds.

I agree with this - the Sox seem to be experts at disappointing huge crowds and national TV audiences, not to mention disappointing the core fanbase by failing to overtake Minnesota every year.
It's frustrating...

July 24. Crede with the walkoff.

Feels like the Sox haven't won a game on national tv since about 1983.

That was the last game I went to where they won...I've been to 7 since.

That game put us 11 over .500 (i believe) AND put us in first place (i believe). That was the high point of the season.

Any disagreement?

Not at all. It was a perfect night. Walkoff homer, back into first place, Saturday night fireworks. Then they lost 11 of their next 13. Sigh.
