June 5, 1960 - Sox pitchers Russ Kemmerer and Frank Baumann both fire complete game shutouts in beating the Kansas City Athletics in a double header. The Sox win both games by the same score of 2 - 0.

June 5, 1967 - Eddie Stanky does it again. The Sox manager lets loose a verbal assault of Red Sox All Star Carl Yazstrzemski. Before a three game set in Fenway, Stanky is quoted as saying, "he may be an All Star from the neck down but in my book heís a moody ballplayer...and I donít like moody ballplayers." Red Sox fans were incensed and let Stanky and the Sox have an earful (among other things), but to their credit the White Sox won two of the three games. (Both J.C. Martin and Wilbur Wood remember this incident and how Yaz and the fans responded to it in their interviews with White Sox Interactive.)
