December 22, 2004 - As part of a plan to add more depth to the rotation, the Sox signed veteran hurler Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez. “The Duke” started strong in 2005, faded somewhat down the stretch but pitched perhaps the most historical inning in franchise history when he came in to a bases loaded, no out situation at Boston in Game 3 of the ALDS. He proceeded to get two pop outs and a strike out as the Sox held on to win and advance to the ALCS.
