July 4-5, 1964- During the 1960's the White Sox were synonymous with outstanding pitching...pitching that was the envy of most of major league baseball (excluding only perhaps, the Dodgers) The best example of this was these two days in Chicago over the 4th of July holiday in 1964. In a time span of roughly 28 hours, the White Sox threw three straight complete game shutouts against the Indians. On the 4th of July itself, Gary Peters blanked the Tribe on three hits, winning 4-0. In the Sunday doubleheader it was Juan Pizarro in game one, tossing a seven hitter, winning 2-0. Then in the nightcap it was Joe Horlen with a 5-0 blanking on four hits. In 27 innings, Cleveland managed no runs on 14 hits. Now thatís pitching!!!

July 5, 1987 - The Sox tie the franchise mark for the most lopsided win when they beat the Indians 17 - 0 at Cleveland. Kenny Williams and Harold Baines each drive in four RBIís in the slaughter.
