2005 Topps Heritage #19 - Juan Uribe

On this day in 2008, Juan Uribe became the last player to homer when the Sox hit four consecutive.

For the first time in franchise history, the White Sox hit back to back to back to back home runs. This happened at home against the Royals in the bottom of the sixth inning. Jim Thome, Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez hit their home runs against Joel Peralta. Rob Tejada replaced Peralta on the mound for Kansas City and promptly gave up a dinger to Juan Uribe.

Juan spent 2004 through 2008 with the White Sox. He helped in making the final two outs of the 2005 World Series. The second to last out saw Uribe dive into the stands to catch a ball. The final out was a slow grounder off the bat of Houston Astros pinch hitter Orlando Palmeiro, over the head of pitcher Bobby Jenks, to shortstop Juan Uribe, who threw to first baseman Paul Konerko for the final out that made the White Sox champions for the first time in eighty-eight years.
