Games and Moments

June 20, 1969
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

It figures that once the White Sox got the hitting they so sorely lacked in previous seasons, the once-star pitching staff would give out.

Joel Horlen and Tommy John were actually reliable at this point. The lowered mound, astroturf infield and not-so-great defense caused their ERAs to take a bit of a hit, but they still had their good games. Gary Peters, however, was in his...

Games and Moments

June 2, 1969
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

King Carlos does it again!

The Sox are treading within a few games of .500 (19-22) going into this Monday night contest in Beantown.

Boston takes a 4-0 lead off starter Joel Horlen; three of those runs are driven in on home runs by Carl Yastrzemski and Rico Petrocelli.

The Sox wait until the top of the 8th to do something about it. Tommy McCraw singles with...

Games and Moments

May 25, 1969
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

The good news: In this game, Tommy John continues to look good coming back from his shoulder injury. He faces the Red Sox and gives up only two hits in 7 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.65. One of the two hits is a solo home run by 1st baseman George (Not C.) Scott.

The bad news: Red Sox starter Jim Lonborg, also coming back from an injury (he tore ligaments in his left knee during...

vs. Boston Red Sox

At this point in the season the Sox look like an improved team offensively-the team average is at .235 (compared to .211 for 1968) led by Carlos May's .306 average. Walt Williams is also over .300. The team is actually one home run off the pace from the previous year-22 at this point (vs. 23 in 1968). 14 of those home runs belong to Carlos May (10) and Bill Melton (4), the rookie 1-2 punch...

Games and Moments

May 2, 1969

The day after the extra inning loss to the Royals, Ed Short called what he termed "a reluctant press conference." At the meeting Sox manager Al Lopez announced his resignation, effective immediately. The Senor wanted to tough it out until season's end, but his distressed stomach could no longer hold out. He was in too much pain. Managing a team like the 1969 White Sox will do that to a guy. The Sox announced that Lopez's faithful...
