FACT EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUK'SDAY, JUNK'8; 10'ia ' Five Consecutive Shutouts And 65 Innings Sans Base On Balls; ''** * Doc White Is Pitching For Sox • B>' HAllRY GUAYSON NKA Sports Kdilor Dr. Guy Harris White was n slim southpaw wlio pitched key games for the old Hltless Wonders. Although His While Sox of that 'lime were notoriously weak often- j sively, they won 19 straight en- - ( route to the American League pennant and world championship In 1900, thanks principally to the strong and cunning arms ot Big I'M Walsh, Yip Owen and the lelt- hand;rs r Nick and Altrock nnd Doc White. • While SlUlliolds a major league record—five consecutive shutouts in 1904. Within n space of 18 days. lie whitewashed Addic Joss and Cleveland with seven hlls, 1-0; . Slcver and St. (Louis wllh one hit, 1-0; Kitson and Detroit with two j hits, 3-0; Andy Coakley nml Phila-, delphia with- four hits, 4-0; nml j Happy Jack Chcsbro and New York with three hits, 4-0. On Oct. 2, with only one day ol rest, White essayed to pitch both ends of a double-header aealnsl New York in Chicago, He won the opener, 1-1. with his skein ol scoreless innings broken in Hie first Inning, when Wee Willie Kcclcr singled and was worked around and across Ihe plal;. White shut out the Highlanders the next, eight rounds. With Boston, New York and Chicago neck and neck, and not far Irom the wire, more than 30,000 fans clamored for White to plUti Ihc nightcap. ONLY JOHNSON AND MATTY It was a case of the pitcher going to the wfll once too oilen. White blanked Ihe Hishlanders the first three rounds, however, making 11 in a row following the luckless opening stanza ot the first game. Only for that lie would have established an all-time major league record of 51 scoreless innings, which Walter Perry Johnson would not have exceeded with 50 In 1913. So remarkable was While's control thai'he slill holds the American Leagui record lor consecutive innings without a base on balls—(is in 1907..Only the immortal Christy Malhewson ' of Ihc New York Gianls nnd the Nallonal League exceeded this—with C8 in 1813. from Georgetown University lo the Phillies In 1901, jumped to Ihc White Sox and the American League in '03. In 13 years In the majors, he bagged 102 games while clropping : 15*, allhough the Pale Hose, will! whouie he spent 11 campaigns, baited as low as-.212 and never more than .209.

The doctor held an amazing wlp.- ardy over the otherwise shining Detroit club, especially while Tigers were winning three pennants in succession—1907-OK-09. i Cleveland was also right down White's lefl-hamlcd alley, .winning just 10 of the 34 games in which the slender collfgiou opposed the Naps.
