STREAKS

The 1967 White Sox had a 10 game winning streak that started on April 30th and vaulted them into 1st place. And as all know, they had a five game losing streak to end the season.

Then, of course, the team opened the 1968 season by losing their first ten games.

"It's a fourteen game losing streak!" exalted Casey Stengel, no fan of Eddie the Brat, after the Sox' 1968 season opening streak hit nine. Stengel explained that he was counting the losses in the last five games of the previous season.

Here is a list of the two big Sox streaks of 1967-68

4/30/67 White Sox 4, Indians 2
5/03/67 White Sox 2, Tigers 1
5/05/67 White Sox 3, Indians 2
5/06/67 White Sox 2, Indians 0
5/09/67 White Sox 5, Orioles 4
5/10/67 White Sox 13, Orioles 1
5/12/67 White Sox 1, Angels 0
5/13/67 White Sox 1, Angels 0
5/14/67 White Sox 4, Angels 2 (1st game)
5/14/67 White Sox 3, Angels 1 (2nd game)

A 1-0 loss to the Twins on the 16th brought the streak to an end.

9/27/67 Athletics 5, White Sox 2 (1st game)
9/27/67 Athletics 4, White Sox 0 (2nd game)
9/29/67 Senators 1, White Sox 0
9/30/67 Senators 4, White Sox 0
10/1/67 Senators 4, White Sox 3

4/21/68 Tigers 4, White Sox 1 (1st game)
4/21/68 Tigers 4, White Sox 2 (2nd game)
4/25/68 Twins 3, White Sox 2

The next day, April 26, the Sox finally snapped the streak with a 3-2 win over the very same team that had stopped their winning streak the year before, the Twins.
