ChiSox Filibuster Senators in Double, Double-Header

July 24, 1971 (Game #1)
CHICAGO -- It was Polish Heritage Night at Comiskey Park for this DH between Washington at Chicago. Who else would the Senators send to the mound, but Bill Gogolewski. It was wiadomo wykoŇĄczenie. Except, neither Gogolewski or Sox  starter Tommy John were pitchers of record. This one went 14 innings (not what a manager wants to see when two clubs face each other in back-to-back twin bills) and Don Mincher (10) provided the heroics with a solo shot in the top of the 14th. Terry Forster (1-4) was the victimized pitcher. Paul Lindblad (6-1) got the win.

July 24, 1971 (Game #2)
CHICAGO -- The White Sox come back and take the night cap with Tom Bradley (8-7) going the full 9, scattering 9 hits, but allowing just 1 run in a 3-1 victory. Rich McKinney pretended he was Polish for the day and led the offense with 2 hits and 2 RBI.

July 25, 1971 (Game #1)
CHICAGO -- Wilbur Wood (14-8) tossed a complete game as the ChiSox won the opener of this double dipper, 3-2. Jay Johnstone (12) doubled and homered for 2 RBI to lead the hitting. Dick Bosman (6-10) went the distance in a losing effort for the Sens.

July 25, 1971 (Game #2)
CHICAGO -- "Beltin' Bill" Melton (22, 23) belted a pair of homers and drove in 5 to lead the Sox to a 12-0 win and sweep of the DH. McKinney went 4 for 5 and Rich Morales drove in 4, including a bases clearing two bagger. Joel Horlen (4-3) hurled 7 strong for the W.
