Collins won Southern League HR derby, he also went 1-3 with a walk in the All Star game. Jiminez went 1-3, Mendick went 2-4, Zavala was 1-2 I think. Dunning pitched well, as did Hamilton. I did not know Ruiz made AS game, must have been a late addition as we only had 6 on the team originally. Ruiz got hammered in the 9th to let game get out of reach.

In Carolina league, Cease pitched well. Flores pitched a scoreless inning. Foster gave up a run. Booker hit a leadoff HR, drove in 4 runs and was the MVP of the game. Basabe did not get a hit if I recall correctly.

In Sally League, Battenfield gave up a run in his inning. Elliott went 1+ scoreless. Blackman hit a homer. Laz Rivera had a couple hits. Dedelow was 1-1.

Today In White Sox History - June 20th


June 20, 1980 - Tigers outfielder Al Cowens attacks White Sox relief pitcher Ed Farmer. In the 11th inning of a game at Comiskey Park, Cowens ran towards Farmer after hitting a ground ball instead of running towards first base. The two had a melee on the mound. One year earlier Farmer broke his jaw when he was pitching for Texas. Chicago police went looking for Cowens after the game to press assault charges.

On June 20 in Baseball History...

    1901 - John W. Taylor goes the distance but takes the loss when the Orphans are defeated by the Beaneaters at Boston's South End Grounds. The right-hander's start begins a stunning streak of 187 consecutive complete games that ends in August of 1906 when he is relieved by another pitcher, after amassing an amazing 1,727 innings of work that includes finishing up 15 games in relief.

    1912 - In a slugfest, the Giants and Braves score a total of 17 runs in the ninth inning. New York scores seven runs in the top of the frame, but the Braves scored 10 runs in the bottom of the ninth to narrow the margin, 21-12.

    1921 - At Fenway Park, Babe Ruth hits his 127th home run helping the Yankees defeat the Red Sox in 10 innings, 7-6. The homer moves the 'Sultan of Swat' past Sam Thompson into second place on the career list for homers and 11 dingers behind all-time leader, Roger Connor.

    1925 - At Forbes Field, Max Carey becomes the first switch-hitter to hit for the cycle. The Pirate outfielder's performance helps Pittsburgh to bash Brooklyn, 21-5.

    1932 - Roger Cramer of the A's has six hits in consecutive times at bat in a nine-inning game. Cramer will do this again in 1935, the only A.L. player to repeat the feat.

    1948 - Cleveland draws 82,781 for a doubleheader, a major league record for a regular season game that will be broken by the same club in 1954. The Indians will attract 2.6 million for the season.

    1950 - After stroking a RBI single in the third inning, Joe DiMaggio strikes again in the seventh with another run-scoring safety to collect his 2,000th career hit. The Yankee Clipper reaches the milestone in an 8-2 victory in Cleveland, the 1537th contest he has played in the major leagues.

    1951 - Bobby Avila goes 5-for-6 at the plate collecting 15 total bases and scoring four runs in the Indians' 14-6 victory over Boston. The Tribe's second baseman offensive output at Fenway Park includes three home runs and a double.

    1956 - At Detroit's Briggs Stadium, Mickey Mantle poles two Billy Hoeft pitches into the right center field bleachers, something no other player had done since the bleachers were built in the late 1930s. New York wins 7-4.

    1963 - The first Mayor's Trophy Game between the Yankees and Mets is played in the Bronx. A crowd of 50,742, made up of mostly National League fans, sees Casey Stengel's expansion team defeat the reigning World Champions, 6-2.

    1967 - At Connie Mack Stadium, Phillies starter Larry Jackson one-hits the Mets, 4-0. It is the right-hander's eighteenth victory over New York without a defeat.

    1973 - In a 7-5 loss to Cincinnati, Giants right fielder Bobby Bonds hits his 22nd career leadoff homer. The first inning shot at Candlestick Park off Don Gullett breaks Lou Brock's record for homers leading off a game.

    1973 - Chicago's Cy Acosta becomes the first A.L. pitcher to bat since the DH rule went into effect. Acosta strikes out in the eighth inning, but is credited with an 8-3 victory over California.

    1980 - Five-foot five Fred Patek hits three home runs to help the Angels beat the Red Sox, 20-2. During his 14-year career in the big leagues with Kansas City, Pittsburgh, and L.A., the diminutive shortstop will hit 41 round-trippers, an average of four each season.

    1982 - At Three Rivers Stadium, in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates, Pete Rose becomes the fifth major leaguer to appear in 3000 games. The Phillies first baseman, playing in his 523rd consecutive contest, joins Ty Cobb‚ Stan Musial‚ Hank Aaron‚ and Carl Yastrzemski as one of only five players to reach the milestone.

    1983 - Yankee outfielder Bobby Murcer retires as an active player ending his 17 year major league career with a .277 lifetime batting average and 252 home runs. The popular outfielder, who also played for the Giants and Cubs, will become a mainstay in the broadcast booth until he succumbs to a brain tumor in 2008.

    1986 - After leading the club to a 26-38 record, Tony LaRussa is fired as manager of the White Sox and replaced by Jim Fregosi. LaRussa will be hired to manage the A's early next month.

    1986 - Collegiate football standout Bo Jackson, who will eventually spend four seasons with the Oakland Raiders, signs to play baseball with the Royals, the defending World Champions. The Auburn running back had been drafted first overall in the 1986 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the Heisman trophy winner turns down the Buccaneers' more lucrative offer when the team refuses to let him play two sports.

    1987 - After giving home runs to Dale Murphy and Ken Griffey, Reds starter Bill Gullickson plunks Andres Thomas in the back with a pitch in the Reds' 8-6 loss at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. The Braves' shortstop takes exception and charges the mound, precipitating a bench-clearing brawl that will result in both of the initial combatants being tossed from the game.

    1991 - At Comiskey Park, Ivan Rodríguez makes his major league debut with the Rangers. The 19-year old backstop becomes the youngest person to catch a major league game.

    1991 - The Reds lose the MVP of the 1990 World Series when Jose Rijo breaks his ankle in a steal attempt. Cincinnati also loses the game to Montreal 1-0.

    1992 - Kelly Saunders fills in for Baltimore's Rex Barney becoming only the second woman to be a public address announcer at a major league game. In 1966, Joy Hawkins McCabe, the daughter of the Senators' public-relations director, became the first female P.A. announcer doing one game for Washington at D.C. Stadium against the White Sox.

    1994 - In a 7-1 defeat to the Indians, the Tigers' string of 25 straight games of hitting a home run ends. The streak tied the major league record set by the 1941 New York Yankees.

    1996 - The Devil Rays get their first win in the history of the organization when the club's Gulf Coast League affiliate beats the GCL Astros. Jose Rodriguez, an 18-year old right-hander from Cotui in the Dominican Republic, gets the victory.

    1997 - Aaron Boone, son and grandson of former major leaguers Bob and Ray, is called up from the minor leagues by the Reds. To make room on the roster Cincinnati demotes his brother, Bret.

    1999 - A rusty Troy Percival, who hasn't pitched in a week, establishes a franchise record with his 127th save for the Angels when he finishes the team's 4-2 victory in New York. The right-handed closer's less than stellar outing, allowing four batters to reach base and giving up a run, surpasses the team mark established by Bryan Harvey in 1992.

    2001 - Hitting his 38th homer of the season, Barry Bonds breaks the major league mark established by Reggie Jackson (1969) and Mark McGwire (1998) for home runs hit before the All-Star game. The Giants' left fielder still has 17 games to add to the record.

    2002 - Luis Castillo extends his hitting streak to 34 games breaking the 1922 record established by Rogers Hornsby for the longest hitting streak by a second baseman. The Dominican infielder's streak, the 14th longest in major league history, also ties Benito Santiago's record set in 1987 for the longest established by a Latin player.

    2002 - A 4 1/2 -hour closed-casket public viewing is held at Busch Stadium for Jack Buck, the 77-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster, who died from complications following lung surgery. The bronze statue depicting him at the microphone outside the stadium is stuffed with cards, stuffed animals, photographs and other memorabilia in memory of the KMOX legend.

    2003 - Miguel Cabrera's first major league hit is a two-run walk-off homer in the eleventh inning of a 3-1 Marlin victory over the Devil Rays at Dolphin Stadium. The Marlins had signed the skinny 20-year old outfielder from Maracay, Venezuela as an amateur free agent in 1999.

    2004 - On Father's Day with his dad in attendance, 34-year old Ken Griffey, Jr. blasts a sixth-inning Matt Morris fastball over the right field wall at Busch Stadium for his 500th career home run. The Reds' center fielder becomes the twentieth major leaguer, and the sixth youngest to reach the milestone.

    2006 - The combined efforts of Rockies' starter Jason Jennings and relievers Tom Martin and Brian Fuentes produce the first one-hitter in franchise history. The 6-0 victory against Oakland marks the third time that one hit or less has been given up in a Coors Field's contest.

    2007 - Connecting on a fifth inning hanging breaking ball thrown by Cubs' hurler Jason Marquis, Sammy Sosa becomes the fifth major league player to hit 600 career home runs. The Rangers' designated hitter, who missed the entire season last year, joins Hank Aaron (755), Barry Bonds (748), Babe Ruth (714) and Willie Mays (660) in reaching the milestone.

    2008 - John Gibbons becomes the third manager to be let go in the last four days as the last place Blue Jays fire their skipper. Cito Gaston, who piloted Toronto to a pair of world championships in 1992 and 1993, has been brought back to lead the team.

    2008 - In recognition of their significant contributions to the community, the Dodgers become the first sports franchise to be honored by the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The team receives an Award of Excellence star, which is placed in the Walk of Fame which includes a constellation of celebrities, real and fictional, who have had a major impact on the entertainment industry.

    2009 - Jeff Weaver beats his kid brother Jered when the visiting Dodgers best the Halos, 6-5, at Angel Stadium. The Northridge, California natives become the eighth set of siblings to start against one another in major league history.

    2009 - A.J. Burnett strikes out the side on nine pitches in the third inning in the Yankees' 2-1 loss to Florida. Josh Johnson, Chris Coghlan, and Emilio Bonifacio all strike out swinging in the Land Shark Stadium contest.

    2009 - A major league oddity happens when two games end on walk-off wild pitches in extra innings on the same day. Jason Jennings errant throw allows Nate Schierholtz to score the winning run for the Giants with two outs in the 11th inning to beat Texas, 2-1, and Andres Blanco comes home on Kerry Wood's miscue giving the Cubs a 6-5 victory over Indians in 13 innings.

    2010 - Twenty-one year-old Dayán Viciedo makes his MLB debut at 3B for the White Sox.  Viciedo goes 1-4 with a strikeout and starts a 5-4-3 DP in the field.  Freddy Garcia picks u his 8th win in the 6-3 victory by the White Sox at National Park in Washington, D.C.

    2011 - The Marlins announce Jack McKeon will be the team's interim manager replacing Edwin Rodriguez, who resigned yesterday. The 80-year old skipper is taking over the floundering Fish club that has lost 10 consecutive games and 18 of its last 19, after starting the season by winning 30 of its first 50 contests.

    2013 - Reds third baseman Todd Frazier, a New Jersey native, has the "The Sopranos" theme song played when he steps up to the plate in the game against Arizona at Chase Field. With the iconic tune from the HBO series, the Cincinnati infielder was paying tribute to James Gandolfini, the actor best known for his role as Garden State mob boss Tony Soprano who passed away yesterday at the age of 51.

    2015 - One out away from a perfect game, Max Scherzer’s bid for immortality is spoiled when Jose Tabata is hit by a pitch, a slider off the elbow that many believed the Pittsburgh outfielder’s leaned into on purpose to get on base. The right-hander records the final out on the next batter to complete his first ever no-hitter, allowing just one hit in two consecutive starts after tossing a 16-strikeout, one-hit complete game against Milwaukee in his last outing.

    2015 - After using Instagram during the game, Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is benched for one contest for violating the team's social media policy. The Panda had hit the “like” button while in the rest room during Boston’s 7-4 loss to Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium.

    2016 - The Texas Rangers signed Neal Cotts as a free agent.

    2016 - The San Diego Padres signed Edwin Jackson as a free agent.
