On July 27, 1951 — The White Sox, just 3 1/2 games behind New York and Boston, open a four-game series in New York. Trailing 3 – 1 in the 9th, the Sox make it 3 – 2 before rain and the Yankees delay the game. Gil McDougald is thrown out for stalling, and Casey Stengel uses five pitchers in the inning. Finally, the Yanks win as the game is called after 30 minutes.
