In their 114th game, the '70 team beat the 2nd place California Angels 8-1 in front of 2,679 fans for a Saturday game at Comiskey Park. In the lineup for the Halos that day were Sandy Alomar Sr, future Sox manager Jim Fregosi, and future South Side Hitman Jim Spencer.

The Sox have their work cut out for them to keep pace. The 1970 team went on to lose 10 of their next 11 games.
Considering we've lost 12 in a row to the ALC and the vast majority of the games left are against the ALC the current team has a legitimate shot...
