Wednesday’s delightful win against the Yankees — brought to us in large part thanks to Ryan LaMarre — marked the second time this season a Sox player has recorded three extra-base hits and four RBI in one game. Interestingly, while a Sox player accomplished this feat one time last year as well, they did have a four year drought prior to that. Today’s Sporcle is inspired from that accomplishment: in White Sox history, which players have logged at least three extra-base hits and four RBI in one game? There are 76 instances in all; how many can you name? Good luck!
- I’ve allotted ten minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the date of the game, and the position of the player.

- The highest WPA of the players on this list came on July 18, 1948: a 4-7, 4 HR, 7 RBI effort in a 12-11 win against the Athletics, good for a .958 Win Probability Added!
- The lowest WPA of the players on this list came on May 20, 1926: a 3-4, 3 2B, 4 RBI effort in a 13-4 stomping of the Red Sox, resulting in just .063 WPA. (To be fair, everybody pretty much contributed to the victory equally, so nobody really had a high WPA in that game)
- Unsurprisingly, the White Sox are 68-8 (.894 winning %) when a player has a game like this.

57. Should’ve gotten 60 at least. I did get everyone in my lifetime.
55. Pretty spotty before 1973; got everybody after then except the 2002 @B and the 1979 RF. Proud that I remembered the 1977 2B. Some surprising names not on this list. Fun sporcle.
65. I remember Claudell Washington’s 3 homer game. And who can forget Fat Pat Seerey’s 4 homer game? Francona’s dad was the first one I missed.
Sorry that I inadvertently put the names in. I’m kinda new to this.
53/76, with almost all of my misses coming before 1977. I sheepishly forgot how to spell
