2009 Allen & Ginter #261 - John Danks

On this day in 2008, John Danks pitched the game of his life in the Blackout Game.

Game number 163. The White Sox send out a call to their fans attending to wear black. It is one of the most defining statements that the Sox can make and it looked incredible and intimidating. John Danks pitched eight outstanding innings, giving up two hits, three walks and zero runs. The only legitimate threat came in the fifth inning when Michael Cuddyer led off with a double. Cuddyer almost made it home later in the inning, but a quick play by center fielder Ken Griffey Jr., throws him out at the plate. A Jim Thome no doubt solo home run and a brilliant ninth inning by Bobby Jenks sealed a White Sox winner.
