In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

September 27, 1967
vs. Kansas City A's
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City

The 1967 White Sox were truly in the catbird's seat. Sure, they were in 2nd place, a game back at the close of play on the 24th, but they had just won 9 of 11, including a three game sweep of the Twins, who were also fighting for their pennant lives, and now headed to Kansas City to face the A's. KC was sitting at 60-95 and was playing out the string, not only for the season, but in their city. The team was preparing to relocate to Oakland the following year.

It got even better as the week went on. Monday was an off-day and Tuesday was rained out, necessitating a twi-night doubleheader on Wednesday.

That afternoon, Boston and Minnesota both lost and Detroit did not play, putting the White Sox only one-half game behind with five games left. They had their two ace pitchers, Gary Peters and Joel Horlen, on the mound that night. In their way stood the loser A's and three at home against another losing team, the Senators. Mike Andrews of the Red Sox later stated that he and his teammates were sick with the thought that the White Sox had the pennant all but won.

Game 1:

A's 5, White Sox 2

W-Dobson L-Peters

Game 2:

A's 4, White Sox 0

W-Hunter L-Horlen
