White Sox Lose Heartbreaker to Kansas City in 13 Innings 6-4

June 2, 1967 @ Comiskey Park (N)

The Chicago White Sox came out of the gate scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning to knock out John 'Blue Moon' Odom and staking Joe Horlen to a 3-2 lead. But, home team bats fell silent after that as Paul Lindblad relieved for 8 innings shutting down the Palehose on 2 hits through the ninth inning.

The Athletics tied the game at 3-3 in the third and not until the 13th inning did another runner cross home plate. Chisox starter Joe Horlen went 10 innings allowing only 8 hits and 3 earned runs. Hoyt Wilhelm relieved in the 13th and surrendered 2 walks and a hit batter before left handed reliever Lew Krausse stroked a 2-out 2-run single to give KC the lead and eventual victory. Krausse picked up the win in relief while Wilhelm suffered the loss.

Tommy McCraw was 3 for 6 on the night with 1 rbi and Pete Ward had 2 rbi's. Tommie Agee continued his fine season going 2 for 5 with his 17th SB and a solo HR in the 13th. The White Sox finished the long night with 8 hits in 44 AB's.

  1. Great action photos of Agee and Horlen. It seems that KC was the team that just broke the dreams that year.
