One of the most bizarre individual stats you’ll ever see occurred on this date. In a 2-1 White Sox win at St. Louis, first baseman John “Bud” Clancy recorded no putouts or assists in the nine-inning game. His feat has been matched only one other time, by the A’s Gene Tenace. Clancy later played for the Dodgers and the Phillies.
José Valentín produced the extremely rare “natural cycle” against the Orioles at Comiskey Park. He singled in the first inning, doubled in the second, tripled in the third and homered in the eighth. The Sox would win this one easily 13-4. Valentín scored twice and had five RBIs in the game.
