Games and Moments
September 27, 1967
vs. Kansas City A's
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City

The 1967 White Sox were truly in the catbird's seat. Sure, they were in 2nd place, a game back at the close of play on the 24th, but they had just swept the Twins, who were also fighting for their pennant lives, and now headed to Kansas City to face the A's. KC was sitting at 60-95 and was playing out the string, not only for the season, but in their city. The team was preparing...

vs. Cleveland Indians
at Cleveland Municipal Stadium

"All year long, the critics have discounted the guts of this team" manager Eddie Stanky said at one point during the great 1967 pennant chase. He was right. The team had bounced back from two seeming knockout punches-the stunning 7-3 loss to Detroit, then a three game losing streak that knocked them 3 games back with 16 left to play.

Next came a three game...

Games and Moments:
September 13 & 14, 1967
vs. Cleveland Indians
at White Sox Park

A September 10 headline in the Sun-Times announced that the Sox were all but dead, about to fall out of the race.

The Sox responded to this by posting a doubleheader shutout that day, highlighted by Joel Horlen's now classic no-hitter. And then...they dropped three straight to fall three games back, in 4th place. That's where they were when they took the field on the...

Games and Moments
September 9, 1967
vs. Detroit Tigers
at White Sox Park

Yee-owwwwch. This one hurt. This one was epic. This was potentially crushing.

The Sox fall out of 1st on 9/7 when they are idle and both the Twins and Red Sox win that day.

The next day, the Tigers roll to town and keep the Sox down with a win. On Saturday the 9th the two teams meet in a nationally televised NBC Game of the Week.

The Sox score three runs...

Games and Moments
September 6, 1967
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

The White Sox appear to be falling out of the race as September begins. They are 1.5 games back but in 4th place. A 10-2 whomping at the hands of the Red Sox makes it 2.5, but Stanky's boys soldier on, winning 4 of 5 to creep within a game as they meet the Angels on this date.

Once again, the starting pitcher-in this case Joel Horlen-had to be protesting "What's a guy gotta...
