1976 HEADLINE: Fergie Jenkins Captures Career Win #200
On this day in 1976, Ferguson Jenkins picked up career win number 200 of his amazing career.
Playing for the Boston Red Sox, and facing the Chicago White Sox, the ‘Fenway Faithful’ were in for a treat.
Jenkins hurled a 4-hit, complete game shutout of the White Sox. He struck out just two batters during the game and walked none.
All of the offense that Jenkins needed for this win was supplied by Rick Burlseon, Bobby Darwin, and Doug Griffin as the Red Sox beat the White Sox 4-0.
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary, Mr. Jenkins!!!
