A Gavin Floyd oddity

Via CSNChicago.com's Chris Kamka, Gavin Floyd joined four other pitches in White Sox history to hit double-digit batters while throwing double-digit wild pitches. The list, to say the list, is interesting:

Roy Patterson (11 HBP, 10 WP -- 1901)
Frank Smith (12 HBP, 12 WP -- 1904)
Kip Wells (12 HBP, 14 WP -- 2001)
Jose Contreras (10 HBP, 16 WP -- 2006)
Gavin Floyd (11 HBP, 12 WP -- 2011)

So after two such seasons in the first five years of the franchise's existence, the Sox went 97 seasons without a pitcher accomplishing this feat. And then it's happened three times in the last 10 years.

And while we're on the subject of random trivia, the White Sox season high in runs came on Opening Day last year. It was the third time in team history that's happened, with 17-3 and 15-8 Opening Day wins in 1951 and 1908 representing the other two instances.
