30 innings of baseball in Chicago? Only on the South Side where lights can continue play through dusk even in the summer time.

Back in the days of Pop Anson’s Colts, in the late 1800’s, the term for a shutout was “Chicagoed.” This footnote from yesterday’s lexicon was appropriate again because, here on the shores of Lake Michigan, the White Sox pitching are back to where they are capable of “Chicagoing” their opponents on a nightly basis.

* Hank Aguirre and Mickey Lolich are giving Detroit the kind of double vision that is exhilarating. People around Tiger Stadium are saying that the 33-year-old Aguirre and 24-year-old Lolich will finish the season as the most resourceful lefthanded pitching combination in baseball.

* The White Sox hold a one-game lead in the junior circuit despite the insistence of Manager Al Lopez that his club can play better. Just where does Lopez put most of the blame individually?
