Today in White Sox History: June 14

A pair of shutouts, to sweep the Carmines

1953

White Sox pitchers Billy Pierce and Sandy Consuegra both fired shutouts in beating the Boston Red Sox in a doubleheader at Comiskey Park. The Sox won, 6-0 and 1-0.

That same day, the Sox acquired pitcher Virgil Trucks in a five-player deal with the Browns. Trucks would throw a pair of one-hitters, and was a 20-game winner, during his time on the South Side.
