July 13, 1919 - You don’t see this everyday. In a 14 - 9 win over Boston, three Sox players score on a routine single of the bat of "Buck" Weaver.

July 13, 1961 - The Sox catcher / pitcher duo of Sherm Lollar and Frank Baumann become only the 3rd set of battery mates to hit back to back home runs in a game. They connected off the Yankees Bill Stafford in the 5th inning of a 5 - 2 loss in Comiskey Park.

July 13, 1964 - In an effort to stay in the pennant race, Sox G.M. Ed Short acquired Chicago native Bill "Moose" Skowron from the Senators for Joe Cunningham and Frank Kreutzer. "Moose" would play well for the Sox in the next few seasons and made the All Star Team in 1965.

July 13, 1993 - Sox ace ‘Black’ Jack McDowell is the winning pitcher as the American League beats the National League 9 - 3 in the All Star Game at Camden Yards, Baltimore. McDowell pitches a scoreless inning. He’d go on to become the league’s Cy Young Award winner later that year.
