Goes on -- the championship game bragging rights will be yours and you have a chance to win the game day experience of a lifetime grand prize are you ready for the third inning. We've had some great veteran White Sox knowledge here from contestants but it's the two young guns in the championship game. Tom your behind 41 how do you wanna start in school the single. Try to single out of the gate get a runner aboard that's a good start. Here's -- question who was the point for the White Sox in their first Major League game in 1901. Was that the Cleveland -- the Detroit Tigers the Milwaukee Brewers or the Washington senators. Let's. It's worked the count -- -- She presented by ATT this your first helper of the game we take away two incorrect answers. And we leave you with the Cleveland -- and the Washington senators. Does that help. Half. Not particularly. I'm gonna go with with the Washington senators. A swing and missed open up the third inning and we go to pat for your first at bat. Yahoo! a personal things going for single here's your question. Which past or present White Sox player has the most inner league home runs in Major League history. Ken Griffey junior. Paul Konerko. Manny Ramirez. Or Jim Thome. No -- had a point. I think excellence though I'd teach him atomic. You are also big man as hawk would say Jim Thome is that correct answer a single for Patrick out of the gate. And back over to Tom his second at bat trailing 41. In the final any. Screw another single Luke track for saying he's got to get somebody on base so he can move along for the scored. Which -- the White Sox pitcher has the lowest ERA in Major League history minimal. 1000 innings pitched is it -- C Scott is it red Faber. Is -- Billy pierce or is Ed Walsh I think I know the answer to this one. And if I'm wrong. And that makes that wouldn't surprise me comment -- that Walsh can go with Ed Walsh that is correct you held on your other -- -- so Ed Walsh -- -- -- At first base all right and now we move over pat you're sector eight plate appearance of the final inning. What I wanna do not single place runner first this would give you first and second if you can get the answer right. Who holds the White Sox single game record for strikeouts. Jack harsh me. Gary Peters. Juan Pizarro or Ed Walsh. Who's this honest broken sixteen strikeouts part Jack Hartman and and that is correct runners at first and second for pat -- -- one lead. Tom the pressure is mounting on you you've got to get something going do you have a runner first base -- -- with a single to go with a single and don't forget he still have a helper left in this here's a question. Who has the most career home runs against the White Sox. Eight Jimmie -- beat Lou Gehrig. See Mickey Mantle or. For some reason. For some reason I think it's Jamie fox on and go with Jimmie Foxx. Don't with a gut feeling there. Not this time he's Babe -- the man she's got. And what are you wanna do double play -- double in your third plate appearance. In the third inning here's your question. Dolphins moron who holds it holds the White Sox rookie record for saves in the season. Solid liberal Hawks Bob James Sergio Santos or Sheen go to catch him. Think and know what I'm not too sure somewhere using we're working countless can work the count presented by. Sure way. Q would be wrong answers. And -- which -- went solemnly -- -- Sergio Santos. -- -- out there and seeing you sooner that this is her. Under that Chris. -- -- -- -- Is the right answer you just put another run on the board of all your locker computer locked and that is an RBI. Doubles so that gives you wait 521 lead here in the final inning. And it sets up this for you Tom you're down four runs you need home runs it's time for the mighty nice rally. Here we got. Touch all home run questions. Your first question days. Prior to a retirement in honor of Jackie Robinson who was the last Sox player to Wear number 42.
