1995

Lance Johnson got six hits in six at-bats in a game at Minnesota. Three of the hits were triples, and he drove in four runs in the 14-4 win. Johnson became the fourth player in team history to go 6-for-6, and the first to ever get three triples in a game. He had 12 total bases for the night.


2017

White Sox slugger José Abreu became the third player in major league history to start his career with four straight seasons of at least 25 home runs and 100 RBIs. The milestone RBI came on a run-scoring ground out off of Kansas City’s Scott Alexander at Guaranteed Rate Field.

José joined Albert Pujois and Joe DiMaggio in accomplishing this rare feat. Pujols, DiMaggio, Abreu, Al Simmons and Ted Williams are the only players to start their careers with four straight seasons of 100 RBIs.
