1904 Boston American hurler Jesse Tannehill no-hits the White Sox at Chicago's South Side Park, 6-0. The Americans will change their name to the Red Sox for the 1907 season. The 30 year-old southpaw issues one one walk, hits a batter and strikes out three en route tossing the third no-hitter in the brief history of the American League.
1990 In the team's 4-2 victory over Texas at Arlington Stadium, Carlton Fisk breaks Johnny Bench's record for home runs by a catcher when he hits his 328th, a deep shot to left field off Charlie Hough in the top of the second inning. The White Sox backstop, who hit 162 round-trippers while playing for the Red Sox, will end his 24-year Hall of Fame career with 376 homers, 351 as a catcher.
2006 For the first time in big league history, both teams hit leadoff home runs in the first two innings of a game. In a 5-4 White Sox victory over Kansas City at U.S. Cellular Field, Royals batters David DeJesus and Emil Brown go deep leading off in the first and second inning, respectively, as do Pablo Ozuna and Jermaine Dye for Chicago.
