Chisox's McDowell first to get 10 wins

Published Oct. 9, 2005

White Sox 4, Athletics 0: Jack McDowell pitched a three-hitter Wednesday to become the major leagues' first 10-game winner, leading Chicago to its second straight shutout at Oakland. McDowell (10-4) gave up two singles to Rickey Henderson and a two-out double in the eighth to Craig Paquette. He walked two and struck out a season-high eight in pitching his second shutout and fifth complete game of the season. Henderson broke baseball's all-time stolen base record, stealing second after singling in his first at-bat. It gave him 1,066 career stolen bases, one more than Yutaka Fukumoto had from 1970-88 in the Japanese League. Fukumoto attended the game, and in pregame ceremonies threw out the first ball and presented Henderson with gold-plated running spikes.
