Today in White Sox History: December 22

Clutch work in Beantown: El Duque spun the most storied inning of the 21st Century for the White Sox in the ALDS. (YouTube)


2004
As part of a plan to add more depth to the rotation, the White Sox signed veteran hurler Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez. “The Duke” started strong in 2005, faded somewhat down the stretch, but pitched perhaps the most historic inning in franchise history when he came in to a bases-loaded, no-out situation at Boston in Game 3 of the ALDS. He proceeded to get two pop outs and a strikeout as the Sox held on to win and advance to the ALCS.
