June 4, 1967 Comiskey Park (Daytime Doubleheader)

White Sox Split Pair With Kansas City

Game 1
30,552 soaked in the sun as Tommy John hurled a CG shutout defeating Jim 'Catfish' Hunter and Kansas City 2-0. TJ scattered 5 singles, struck out 7 while allowing only 1 BB. Chicago White Sox Ken Berry had the big hit singling in Ed Stroud (who led off the frame with a three bagger) and Tommie Agee (HBP). John was never in serious trouble and retired the A's in the 9th, 3 up and 3 down.

Game 2
Kansas City Athletics starting pitcher Jim Nash (6-5) handcuffed the Palehose through 7 1/3 leading KC to a 5-4 victory and earning a split of the twinbill. The A's pushed across 4 runs in the 4th off Chisox starter Johnny Buzhardt (2-4) and held on to win despite a 2-run HR by Tommie Agee (who also stole his 18th base of the year) and Ed Stroud's 2 runs scored. Stroud started both games and batted 3rd each game. The White Sox are now 26-18 on the season.
