Danks Brothers Have Historic Moment

John and Jordan Danks both currently play for the Chicago White Sox. On August 25, 2013, while playing against the Texas Rangers, John was the winning pitcher. Brother Jordan delivered the game-deciding home run, in the 5-2 victory. Jordan became the first player to hit a home run in support of his pitcher brother since 1956, when Wilmer Shantz homered in support of brother Bobby for the Kansas City Athletics.
