Let's play two!!!!!

June 21, 1956- It was either a case of great pitching, or terrible hitting as the Sox beat the Orioles 1-0 in a game that took just two hours and twelve minutes.

Both Baltimore starter Connie Johnson (who used to pitch for the Sox) and the Sox Jack Harshman each allow the opposition only one hit. The Sox scored their run in the first inning when Jim Rivera walked, stole second and scored on a double by Nellie Fox. Typical for the 1950's eh?

June 21, 1973- Sox pitcher Stan Bahnsen, a 21 game winner in 1972, throws one of the strangest shutouts in baseball history.

Bahnsen beat the As 2-0 at Comiskey Park. He allowed 12 hits and a walk in the process! Oakland left ten men on base.
