May 4, 1936 - The Sox purchase the contract of "Dixie" Walker from the Yankees. Alas this was a big one who eventually got away as the Sox traded him in a deal with the Tigers. Walker would achieve stardom in Brooklyn winning a batting title and playing in four All Star games.

May 4, 1980 - During an 11 - 1 loss to the Brewers at Comiskey Park, Mike Squires becomes the first left handed catcher to appear in a game since Dale Long in 1958. The move came in the 9th inning and saw Squires behind the plate for four hitters.

May 4, 1992 - For Sox starter Alex Fernandez it was his best performance on a pitching mound. Fernandez one hit Milwaukee winning 7 - 0 at Comiskey Park. Alex struck out seven allowing only a one out double to Dante Bichette in the second inning.

Thanks, Lip, for rekindling a few of the many great memories from that White Sox–Milwaukee rivalry which dissolved when the Brewers jumped to the NL. It's a shame these two teams have never played each other in an interleague game.

Well I know the Sox played Milwaukee in the 2000 interleague series. I have a game on tape.

Didn't Squires play third base one time as well?

The Sox have played the Brewers a few times in interleague play, the last I remember being in 2001.

Here's the last time they have played each other: http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/MIL/MIL200107170.shtml

Atlanta:

He played the first five innings at 3rd base when LaMarr Hoyt tossed his one hitter at the Yankees.

May 2, 1984 - It was the finest regular season performance by LaMarr Hoyt as he one hit the Yankees winning 3 - 0 at Comiskey Park. The Cy Young Award winner lost his no hitter on a single by Don Mattingly with one out in the seventh inning.

How did that '01 team not lose 100 games with the lineup they were throwing out there? :D: Canseco, Liefer, Perry, Clayton, MJ and Kip Wells as 4 thru 9? I know Mags must have been on the bench that day, but that's pathetic.

For some reason, I really hated Jeff Liefer when he was on the Sox


Wow, looking at that box score, the Brewers were the strikeout kings then, Sexson, Jenkins, Burnitz and Jose Hernandez

It also looked weird seeing Jon Garland credited with the save in that game.
