Double header time (and you thought they didn't play them anymore! LOL)

July 14, 1953- Sox pitcher Billy Pierce, perhaps the greatest lefty in franchise history, starts the All Star Game in Cincinnatiís Crosley Field. Billy throws three innings allowing only one hit. He gets no decision in the N.L.ís 5-1 win.

July 14, 1991- It was Ďalmostí a no-hitter with an unusual twist. Sox starter Jack McDowell opened the game at Milwaukee by allowing a lead off home run by Paul Molitor. It would be the only hit on the day for the Brewers as Jack recorded the next 27 outs without allowing a hit. McDowell allowed only one walk and a base runner via error the rest of the afternoon in the Sox 15-1 laugher.

I think MinnieMe is quite rightly suggesting Ken Kravec is the greatest lefty in Sox history, not Billy Pierce, although I think Steve Trout gives both of them a run for their money.
