On This Day In Baseball History: August 14, 2008

Thome-Konerko-Ramirez-Uribe

 

Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez, and Juan Uribe hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back homers for the Chicago White Sox to become only the sixth team in history to do so. The White Sox join the Red Sox (2007), Dodgers (2006), Twins (1964), Indians (1963), and the Braves (1961). The Sox would finish the 2008 season 1st in the AL Central with a record of 89-74. They would lose in the AL Division Series to the AL champs the Tampa Bay Rays.
