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 24,1977
vs. Seattle Mariners
at Seattle Kingdome

The Sox are going through the motions at this point, trying to at least regain 2nd place after Oakland had knocked them into 3rd.

The Sox struck right away. Ralph Garr singled and Chet Lemon doubled. With Royle Stillman up, Seattle starter Diego Segui uncorked a wild pitch to score Garr. Oscar Gamble doubled to score Lemon and, with two out, relief pitcher Greg Erardi intentionally walked Jim Spencer to set up Jack Brohamer for a force at any base. Jack had other ideas, lining a three run homer, only his 2nd of the year, to put the Sox up 5-0.

Ken Kravec moved through the Mariner lineup in the 1st but ran into trouble in the 2nd, loading the bases with one out, then plunking Dave Collins with a pitch to force in a run. Ken bore down after that, inducing fly outs from Julio Cruz and Ray Fosse to end the inning.

The Sox didn't do anything the next two innings-doubles by Brohamer and Garr were the only noise.

They struck in the 5th when they loaded the bases, with one of the hits being Brohamer's second double. Bill Nahorodny hit a bases loaded sacrifice fly to score Jim Spencer and make the score 6-1. They scored again in the 6th when Brohamer cracked a single to score Gamble.

The Sox were up 7-1 when Brohamer led off the top of the 9th by ripping a triple. With that hit, Brohamer became only the second player in White Sox history to hit for the cycle in a game. The only other Sox to do it up to that point had been Ray Schalk, who accomplished the feat against the Detroit Tigers on June 22,1922. Nahorodny then drove him in with a single and was out trying to stretch it into a double.

Seattle scored twice in the 9th to make it 8-3 before Kravec was pulled in favor of John Verhoeven. John came in with two on and one out and got Leroy Stanton and Ruppert Jones both to ground out to end it.

The night ended with the Sox at 87-69 and Jack Brohamer a part of the record books.
