September 13, 1967 - In one of the longest games in franchise history and in the middle of a four team pennant race, the Sox shut out Cleveland 1 - 0 in seventeen innings! (Now thatís pitching!) The game lasted over four and a half hours and was finally finished when Rocky Colavito singled to right driving home Buddy Bradford. One other note on this game. Sox starter Gary Peters allowed one hit in eleven innings, he also walked ten! (I wonder what his pitch count was!)

September 13, 1987 - In a game in Seattle, Sox pitcher Floyd Bannister fires a one hitter in winning 2 - 0. Harold Reynolds two out single to left in the 1st inning, was the only base runner on the night for Seattle and ironically he was thrown out trying to stretch the hit to a double! Bannister faced the minimum 27 hitters and struck out ten.

September 13, 2004 - Due to Hurricane Ivan, Comiskey Park is host to the first two games of a series between Montreal and Florida. Itís the first time a National League team hosts a game in an American League park since 1946.
