The third and final inning of the 10th episode of The Batter's Box - 9/2
And welcome back the third and final eight of batter's box our third game is sponsored by AT&T. We've got a showdown of 54 game four more plate appearances for each person. It's the rookie of the year from doubtful against the cagey vet from Rogers park might all right pat you're in the lead. And you're up first in the -- what he wanted to you try to run around to go personal list trying to get a runner aboard and -- possible run. Later in the game who hit 814 inning home run in game 382005. World Series. I think you know this point. -- Jeff Long -- Carl Everett see Timo Perez or. I'm not a much better players -- as -- hey Jeff lump. You've liked his haircut and I like the answer Jeff Long correct I send you -- head and helmet and his hair was always perfect he had perfect terror unfortunately. Mike I don't have any hair advice for the guys coming up in the next question what are you wanna -- Well. I meant the match him and to stay conservative and go for a single stay in the first single OK here's your question who -- 2005 White Sox in regular season winds. -- Contreras. Garcia or Garland and shaking your head are ready and not his. Easiest it is. It never -- right. Heard Jon Garland should have been considered first Cy Young. -- and triggers you. They're all great post season him. Some general would. You are correct I thought that not. Think too much about it though he led the team in both wins and losses in 2005. So we go back over to pat was a runner at first. And a one run lead you double plays double here's your question for the double. Who hit the first home run at US cellular field then named new Comiskey Park was rob deer Cecil Fielder. Mickey Kelton or Alan Trammell out of the B Cecil Fielder. For Cecil Fielder is correct so now you have two runners aboard and two in scoring position. Second third with a one run lead. What do you think it -- I'm thinking tiny bit tired okay. Some never go for triple going 48 triple. These are never easy questions. Which Minnesota Twins pitchers surrendered frank Thomas's first career home run Rick Aguilera. Roy Smith. Gary Wayne or David West the first one big frank hit. That is good OK. Well you lose. Well. I haven't heard of Troy Smith -- Gary Wayne. And you still have the help for the pinch hit. I'm just gonna have to guess just getting yes all right frank Thomas's first home run who gave it up. So that leaves your runner at first base you're still down just to run and certainly in this gave it back over to pat him. And a double would drive in two and really give you some insurance but what are you choosing to not double -- you are gonna go for the double okay I thought so. Here's Patrick's question who holds the White Sox record for most RBI. In a month. Harold Baines Albert bell many minnows so we're Frank Thomas know Geoff -- to choose from this time. And I play her pairs up there to. And it was DL rebel. -- it is not Albert -- it is herald seems age is the correct answer. All right so miss questionnaire might you've got an opportunity to try and tie this game up or just get another runner aboard what you wanna -- While the triple was a little bit too hard so I'm gonna with a double -- with a double trying to get to -- here's Mike's question. For the double your third of the inning. Who holds the White Sox record for most home runs in a month Dick Allen and Albert -- Frank Thomas Jim Thome. I think it's Jim Thome. You're going deep Jim Thome. Jim Thome is not correct it is he helper -- your routine in July of 1998. But still in this game it is far from over we go back over pat and now you have a chance to really take advantage runners at second and third. Final swing of the game for -- Chicago for double play is going for a double trying to drive in both runs and make it seven to pour. Who wanted a home run derby at the 2003. All star break it US cellular field. Was it Garret Anderson Jim Edmonds Jason Giambi or Albert Pujols. -- to -- my father for him and figures for the -- or they don't start policy rat in a game that helped that all three on the marquee game. The home run derby and the Austrian. Com it was Gary Anderson Nelson and MVP an Australian here at. Garret Anderson is. Correct you've got that right and two more runs on the board for pat. And now 87 to afford lead over Mike that the game is not over now we go to them -- this rally because you can't tie the game with a home run. But modest rally yet keep getting these home run questions right until you tie the game. You're ready for it. I guess so yeah why not here we go you might just rally question is. For a home run. Who led the White Sox in homers during the 1920s. Eddie Collins did fall Willie camp or -- Shealy. Well I know they didn't hit many home runs back in the morning so. And I only heard of any calendar so. I'm really ready talents. Eddie Collins unfortunately it's the end of the line didn't -- she's correct answer that means catcher went seven to four. Mike you went on an unbelievable run fourteen straight answers. The young -- got you finally he knows his baseball stuff and obviously both you guys -- White Sox trivia. -- -- two of the semi final spots are played only two remain. We are one step closer to finding out which players will represent their team in the championship game.

It was pretty it was pretty tough. Questions were obviously tougher than. The first game and I -- sort of knew that. Things were. They're gonna go my way after I missed. -- -- -- You know just like didn't. In baseball you know momentum. And not and I missed three -- -- -- and I just couldn't recover.
