On June 21, 1942 Ted Lyons wins his 250th career game, 6 – 5, over the Red Sox. A week later, he will beat New York’s Red Ruffing to match the Yankee hurler’s 251 career wins. The White Sox veteran will finish the season with 20 complete games in 20 starts, lead the AL with a 2.10 ERA, then enter the Marine Corps at age 42.
