August 26, 1933 - The Sox honor one of the greatest pitchers in franchise history when Ted Lyons day is celebrated at Comiskey Park. Lyons though didn’t have his best stuff that day as he took the loss in the 10 - 5 decision to the Philadelphia A’s.

August 26, 1971 - It was the kind of thing that could only happen to the White Sox and only in Baltimore’s ‘house of horrors,’ Memorial Stadium. The Sox trailed 6 - 0 before mounting a big comeback that saw them take a 9 - 8 lead in the 9th inning thanks to a home run by Mike Andrews. With two outs, torrential rain hit the area and after a wait of almost an hour and a half, the game was called. Because of rules in place at the time, the score reverted back to the last completed inning, the 8th, which saw Baltimore ahead 8 - 7. That’s the way the game ended...typical.

curious, how do the current rules read for that situation?

Game would be suspended and completed at a later date. It was changed this year.
