September 26, 1905 - In a double header at Boston, Sox pitcher "Big" Ed Walsh relieves starter "Doc" White in the first inning of the first game and gets the win 10 - 5. He then starts and wins the nightcap game 3 - 1. White didn’t retire a batter so Walsh got credit for a pair of complete games.

September 26, 1943 - The Sox set the franchise record for the most runs ever scored in the 4th inning of a game, when they put 13 on the board against the Senators at Washington. They’d win the game 15 - 3. Future Sox star pitcher Early Wynn was the victim of the Sox uprising. Also of note in the thirteen run inning, was the Sox ‘triple’ steal on one play, as Thurman Tucker, Guy Curtright and Luke Appling all swiped bases, with Tucker stealing home.

September 26, 1984 - Despite a disastrous season on the field, the Sox draw 2,136,988 fans becoming the first Chicago franchise to draw two million or more fans in consecutive seasons.

September 26, 1998 - Sox outfielder Brian Simmons becomes the third player in franchise history to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in the same game. Simmons connects off the Royals Brian Barber and Allen McDill. He drives in five runs in the Sox 13 - 5 win.

The "Brian Simmons-McKay Christensen-Jeff Abbott Era" didn't last long did it?

And of course, Doc White went on to a complete game victory in the 6th game of the 1906 World Series to give Sox fans eternal bragging rights over the Scrubs.
