Alexei homers to push hitting streak to 15 games
CHICAGO -- Given the length of the White Sox 6-4, 14-inning loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday night, it's easy to forget history was made in the sixth inning.
Alexei Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a two-run homer to left off starter Clay Buchholz, tying him with Hall of Famer Frank Thomas for the longest hitting streak to start a season in franchise history.
"First of all, I wasn't even aware of that," Ramirez said. "I'm thankful it happened, but I wasn't even thinking about it. I was more concentrating on the game than anything else."
