Pale Hose Sweep Carmines
In a shocking opening series result, the White Sox pitchers put the Red Sox hitters on ice as they sweep the “laundry” series. The ChiSox hurlers limited the Carmines to just 7 runs and a .155 batting average. Steve Stone went 6 1/3 innings for a season opening 6-3 win. Ron Schueler did not allow a hit in 2 2/3 as he earned the save.
Chet Lemon’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 9th plated Bobby Bonds as Chicago grabbed game two 3-2. Jim Willoughby took the win in relief. Bonds would hit .417 for the series.
Butch Hobson’s error in the bottom of the 8th allowed the lead run to score. Junior Moore followed with a 2-run single as the White Sox took the finale 5-2. Larrin LaGrow tossed 2 2/3 innings of hitless relief or veteran Wilbur Wood and earned the win.
