Box Score of the Week

The White Sox were in town this past week, which got me thinking of the many memorable Sox-Twins matchups over the past 10+ seasons.

With that in mind, let's check out a game from July 2009.


When Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle got former teammate Joe Crede to ground out in the bottom of the 5th inning, it was the 42nd consecutive batter he retired, setting a MLB record (Buehrle pitched a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays in his previous start). He went on to extend the record to 45 before allowing a walk to Alexi Casilla with two outs in the sixth.
