July 13,1975
vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at Milwaukee County Stadium

Wilbur Wood wasn't having the best year. He stumbled out of the gate at 0-4 before winning his first game of the season. At one point he was 3-10 with an ERA of 5.74. Sox fan feelings about Wilbur were possibly summed up in the person who wrote the Tribune to complain that Chuck Tanner's habit of starting Wood every two days was finally catching up to him.

Wood started to put it together and was...

June 30,1975
vs. Oakland A's
at White Sox Park

The Sox continue to stay hot. The 8-3 win over Fergie and the Rangers completed a three game sweep, and they took three more from the Royals to run their winning streak to 8 and allowed them to escape from the AL West cellar. Maybe these Sox had some grit and fight in them after all.

The A's came into town in 1st place riding an 8 game winning streak of their own. The matchup promised to be a good one-the improving...

June 26,1975
vs. Texas Rangers
at White Sox Park

The June 22 wins against the Twins kicked off a winning streak that reached four games going into this Thursday afternoon match vs. the Texas Rangers. Wilbur Wood, 4-10 with a 5.20 ERA at this point, went against Ferguson Jenkins, who was following up a 25-13 season in 1974 with a so-so 8-7 record. Still it promised to be a fun match up.

7,681 turned out on a nice day to see the game. The Sox kicked off the scoring...

June 22,1975
vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The Sox were lagging nine games under .500 and sale rumors were starting to burn when Roland Hemond pulled off two deals at the trading deadline of June 15.

The first one was done to cut down John Allyn's large payroll. Stan Bahnsen aka "Stanley Struggle" was traded to the Oakland A's, who were in 1st place and looking to shore up their pitching in anticipation of another division title. In exchange...
