Seems this one might be working as you expected (?)

-- in the script of the dataGrid: -------

local hcColumn,theColumn
on mouseDown
    put the dgHeaderControl of the mouseControl into hcColumn
    if hcColumn is not empty then
       put the dgColumn of the target into theColumn
       if theColumn is "date" then
          dispatch "sortByColumn" to the target with "date"
          wait 1 sec
          set the dgColumnSortDirection["number"] of the target to  
"ascending" -- may be not necessary
          dispatch "sortByColumn" to the target with "number"
       end if
    end if
end mouseDown
