1925 In Chicago, Tiger outfielder Ty Cobb becomes the first player to collect 1,000 career extra-base hits when he doubles in Detroit's 8-1 win over the White Sox. The 'Georgia Peach', who surpassed Honus Wagner's record of 993 earlier in the season, will finish his 24-year major league career with 1,139.
1930 During the nightcap of a twin bill, Joe Sewell strikes out twice facing White Sox southpaw Pat Caraway in Cleveland's 5-2 victory over Chicago. The Indians' infielder will be fanned a total of only three times in his 353 at-bats this season.
1976 Ken Brett's no-hit bid ends with two outs in the ninth, when White Sox third baseman Jorge Orta hopes Jerry Remy's slow roller will go foul. The no-hitter is lost when the ball stays fair, but the southpaw, who tosses 10 innings of two-hit ball, gets the victory when the Pale Hose beat California in the 11th, 1-0.
1997 Frank Thomas, Harold Baines, and Robin Ventura hit consecutive home runs in the eighth inning of the White Sox' 12-1 win over Milwaukee. Chad Kreuter adds another round-tripper in the seven-run frame, making Chicago the 16th team in American League history to hit four homers in one inning.
