Sorry this is late. Had to take my wife to the hospital at 5:30 this morning for emergency surgery. They had to remove her appendix. She's doing well and will be released tomorrow.

April 28, 1946 - Sox pitcher Ted Lyons wins his 260th career game. It would be his last in the major leagues. The future Hall of Famer beats the St. Louis Browns 4 - 3. Lyons would finish his career throwing 28 straight complete games! Lyons would have his #16 retired in 1987.

Lyons would finish his career throwing 28 straight complete games!

How does that compare to others in that era?


Glad to hear your wife's doing well. :smile:

According to the scoreboard at tonght's (4-28) game, April 28th is the anniversary of not only the 500th win in the team's history, but the 1,000th victory. Both wins were over Detroit.
