White Sox Battle Brewers to a Draw


Game 1: Chicago WSox 5 Milwaukee 4
WP Wilbur Wood (2-2, 6.27 ERA)
LP   Larry Sorenson (2-4, 2.52 ERA)
S  Jim Willoughby (3rd)
GWRBI: Lamar Johnson

The Brewers struggled early as Chicago tagged Milwaukee pitcher Larry Sorenson early for 4 runs.  But skipper George Bamberger was patient with his young star, allowing him to work back into the game.  Behind a 3 run shot by Ben Oglivie, the Brewers had the score tied back up by the 6th inning at 4-4.  But it was WSox Lamar Johnson who would respond with his 3rd homer of the season to put Chicago ahead for good as the WSox win 5-4.  Pitcher Wilbur Wood (2-2, 6.27 ERA), who had been tagged all season long, responded with a nice outing pitching 6 innings and striking out 4.

Game 2: Chicago WSox 0 Milwaukee 1
WP Jerry Augustine (6-1, 3.06 ERA)
LP   Rich Wortham (0-1, 1.29 ERA)
GWRBI: Paul Molitor

A pitchers battle broke out in County Stadium but it was Milwaukee who hung on to win a close one this time.  Lefty Rich Wortham took the mound for the first time as a starter for Chicago and delivered a gem of a game.  Striking out 4 batters and going 7 innings strong before being pulled for another lefty Rich Hinton.  It was a 5th inning, 1 out, double by Paul Molitor driving in Buck Martinez that gave the Brewers the edge and eventual game winning score.  Jerry Augustine continues his dominance for the Brewers earning his league leading 6th win of the season.
