September 3, 1936 - Luke Appling’s then club record 27 game hitting streak ends in Boston courtesy of pitcher Wes Farrell. His record would stand until 2004 when Carlos Lee breaks it by hitting in 28 straight games.

September 3, 1990 - Sox relief pitcher Bobby Thigpen sets the major league mark when he gets his 47th save of the season in a win over Kansas City. He’d finish the year with 57 saves, still the big league record.

Thigpen had one less save in 1990 than the 2007 team has victories right now, and we're 85% through the season.
