June 21, 1942 - Sox pitcher and future Hall of Famer Ted Lyons wins his 250th game beating the Red Sox 6 - 5. That season Lyons only pitched on Sunday’s and posted this incredible statistic. In his 20 starts he completed all 20 games! At the end of the season Lyons then joined the Marines and served four years.

June 21, 1956 - It was either a case of great pitching, or terrible hitting as the Sox beat the Orioles 1-0 in a game that took just two hours and twelve minutes. Both Baltimore starter Connie Johnson (who used to pitch for the Sox) and the Sox Jack Harshman each allow the opposition only one hit. The Sox scored their run in the first inning when Jim Rivera walked, stole second and scored on a double by Nellie Fox.

June 21, 1964 - The Sox drop their 9th straight game on the season to the Yankees 2 - 1 in 17 innings. It allowed New York to sweep the twin bill with the Sox scoring only one run on the day in 26 innings. This one really hurt because New York got the winning run home thanks to an error by infielder Al Weis. The Sox would lose another one to the Yanks the next day running the streak to ten in a row, before finally winning against them in August. Those losses were costly since in 1964 the Sox ended the year...one game, behind the Yankees.

June 21, 1973 - Sox pitcher Stan Bahnsen, a 21 game winner in 1972, throws one of the strangest shutouts in baseball history. Bahnsen beat the A’s 2-0. He allowed 12 hits and a walk in the process!

1942 - Ted Lyons, a man's man.
1956 - Ozzie ball, long before Ozzie. Please, please bring it back!
1964 - Like I've stated previously, that year and not 1967 was the one that really traumatized me. This was a really good Sox team, with some of the best pitching in my lifetime.
1973 - Bill Gleason IIRC was the writer who called him "Stanley Struggle". His pitch counts would give the stat geeks a stroke.
