A busy day in October...

October 6, 1905 - The Sox lose the pennant on the next to last day of the season when pitcher Guy"Doc" White cant beat the bottom feeding St. Louis Browns. White and the Sox lose 6 - 2 which hands the flag to the Philadelphia Athletics. The Sox would finish the season two games off the pace.

October 6, 1908 - The Sox lose the pennant on the last day of the season when Ty Cobb and Detroit win the decisive game 7 - 0. Guy "Doc" White again was the pitcher of record, only this time he may have had an excuse. He was working on two days rest having beaten the Tigers 3 - 1 on October 4th.

October 6, 1909 - Architect Zachary Taylor Davis submits his design for a new ballpark on the South Side to owner Charles Comiskey.

October 6, 1959 - At the mammoth L.A. Coliseum, which was the temporary home of the Dodgers, the White Sox play "small ball" in Game #5 of the World Series. They beat Sandy Koufax 1 - 0 to stay alive, cutting L.A.s lead to three games to two. The only Sox run scores on a double play ground ball but it turns out to be enough. "Jungle" Jim Rivera saves the game with one of the finest catches in World Series play running down a deep drive from Charlie Neal with two men on base. Rivera looks into that murderous sea of white shirts and somehow catches the ball over his shoulder. The Sox become the first team in World Series history to have three pitchers combine for a shut out (Bob Shaw, Billy Pierce, Dick Donovan). Alas the Dodgers mangle the Sox in Game #6 to win the series four games to two. (Some of the Sox who played in that series, Billy Pierce, Jim Landis and Bob Shaw talk about their memories of it in their interviews with White Sox Interactive.)

October 6, 2000 - Another dramatic and fantastic season is ruined as the Sox fall apart and lose the divisional series in three straight games to the Mariners. The Ms clinch the series despite a heroic effort from pitcher James Baldwin. JB, pitching with a bad arm, holds the Mariners to one run on three hits in six innings. Seattle scores the series clinching run in the 2 - 1 win, on a suicide squeeze from Carlos Guillen in the 9th inning. Replays showed him clearly out of the batters box on the bunt attempt, but Sox manager Jerry Manuel never protested the play. During the series, the Sox run their home post season losing streak to nine games in a row, dating back to the 1959 World Series. The all time big league record for home post season futility is ten straight, set by the Phillies.

I remember that, I was sitting at Alcoks with some buddies and I pretty much cried.

Ugh...that Seattle series was miserable. Looking back it shouldn't have been too surprising that we lost given the pitching we had (Jim Parque, anyone?), but still, those were a tough, tough 3 games.

At least the home loss streak ended at nine in 2005!

The Seattle series should've been a sweep on our end. That's the difference between having the mojo and not I guess. That Mariners team had it and gave the Yankees a run for their money after beating us.

That was a hell of a game by Baldwin. He pitched his ass--and his arm--off for us.

The Sox pitching held up that series. The offense stunk.

JB might still be walking off the mound to the dug out from that game. I don't remember any of his pitching I just knew that it took him about 4 times as long as any pitcher in the Majors to get from that mound to the dug out.

Typical White Sox right here.

I remember this very well, like you Scotty, I almost cried.

I ran home from school to see the end of the game, when I got home from school I sat down, turned on the TV, just before the bunt was layed down for the winning run to score. I came home just in time.

I did cry.:whiner: The way the Sox played in that series broke my heart, just like the 1983 & 1993 Sox playoff teams did. But then came October 26, 2005 and all was forgiven. :smile:

The only time I ever cried after a Sox loss was when they lost that game. I was in 7th grade.

When I think back to the Seattle series I recall Game 1 in extra innings when Pinella trotted out to first base to whisper something in [I believe] Mike Cameron's ear. The count on Edgar Martinez was 1-0. Manuel stupidly called for a pitchout and Cameron stayed on first. Edgar proceeded to crush the 2-0 pitch into the bleachers. I wanted Manuel's head on a platter from that point forward. Pinella's act was so little league and Manuel bought it. Incredible.

The sting from that and Tito Landrum went away in 2005.:smile:

Piniella pwned Manuel's ass thoroughly in that series. But what are you gonna do, the truth is we were lucky to be in the playoffs that year. That offense was something else.

I sat in my car in the parking lot of my high school listening to that game on the radio while I missed the whole first half of a basketball game (I'm in Michigan, girls play basketball in the fall here). It was endless agony sitting there in the dark in my '93 Escort wagon trying to hear what was happening through the AM1000 static while all my friends were inside the gym wondering where the heck I was.

The Sox pitching held up that series. The offense stunk.that's what's ironic. PK, Frank, and Maggs all had a horrible series.
