ChiSox Take 2 of 3 from Tigers; D-Day Veterans honored

June 4, 1971
CHICAGO -- "Beltin' Bill" Melton (12) banged out 3 hits, including his 12 homer of the year, driving in 5 runs for a 7-3 White Sox winner. The Sox piled up 6 runs in the first 3 innings off Mickey Lolich (9-6). Wilbur Wood (8-2) went the the full 9 for the victory in this battle of ace southpaws.

June 5, 1971
CHICAGO -- Not exactly your model Major League Baseball game. The White Sox won 12-7. A total of 5 errors were committed. Each pitching staff gave out 8 free passes each. Both teams left 10 on base. Hitting? Ok, there was some of that. Mike Andrews led the Sox with 3 base knocks, Tom Egan (2) smacked a 3-run HR.

June 6, 1971
CHICAGO -- D-Day anniversary! Numerous veterans were on hand who took part in the Normandy, France invasion 27 years ago today. Their mention gets the bold letters in this write-up. Tigers salvage 1 game in the series with a 7-3 win. They plated 4 in the T9th. Aurelio Rodriguez, who went 3-for-5 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI plated the game-winner with an RBI IF ground-out.
Al Kaline and Bill Freehan also collected RBI singles. Mickey Stanley added a SF.
