A Couple Of Records

The White Sox may finally be reaching their potential. Today, they achieved a club record and a Major League record.

The Club Record:

Back...
to back...
to back...
to back home runs...
by Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Juan Uribe!

This would be the first time in White Sox history that the Sox have homered with four straight batters. Toby Hall prevented it from being five in a row by striking out, in case you were wondering.

This is only the sixth time in Major League history that this feat has occurred, but it is the very first time that it has happened with the 5, 6, 7 & 8 hitters.

And now for something completely different...

The Major League Record:

Carlos Quentin has been hit by a pitch in six straight games!

Ouch! No wonder he had two days off before this record breaking game. Plus, Quentin is only one bases loaded hit by pitch from setting that record too. I guess this record shows that Quentin is not intimidated by inside pitches. I can't really think of a more painful record than this. Can you?

It certainly would be exciting to have been there, because it's exciting just hearing about it.
