vs. New York Yankees
at Yankee Stadium

By this point in the season, Eddie Stanky was all but a raving maniac. The Brat did not take losing well, and the Sox' bad start and inability to extract itself from the resulting quagmire ate away at him.

His first act was to blame the media for the team's bad play and he barred them from the Sox clubhouse. Next he tried to motivate the players by introducing a series of petty fines...

vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

Sox enter the first game of this Sunday double header at 4-13, having ended their season-opening 10 game losing streak 9 days earlier.

Gary Peters, 0-3 going into the game, goes the distance in this one and gives up 1 run and six hits while striking out 9 as the Sox win 5-1. Miffed, perhaps, at his record and lack of run support, Peters himself provides the margin of victory by...

vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

This game was played in a snappy 2:04 in front of a crowd of 3,872. Cisco Carlos, still looking like the answer to the Sox' problems with the fourth spot in the rotation, pitched 8 innings and gave up only one hit. Bob Locker pitched the 9th as the Sox beat the Yankees 4-1.

Also of note in this game-the White Sox' starting 3rd baseman is 22 year old Bill Melton, making his major league...
