Angels Whitewash Sox
Game 1 – Carney Lansford single-handedly shredded the White Sox, driving in all 5 runs in a 5-4
California victory. Lansford hit a 3-run blast in the 6th
and a 2-run double in the 7th.
Game 2 – Joe Rudi’s 2-run double in the 3rd provided all the offense for the Halos in a 2-1 win. Frank Tanana (6-4) was the winner with Dave LaRoche (9) adding the save.
Game 3 – An 11-run 1st inning for the Angels highlighted a crazy closing game for the series. Ron Fairly’s 3-run bomb and Lyman Bostock’s 2-run triple were the biggest blows. However, the White Sox answered back with 2 in the home 1st and 8 more in the 2nd to make it 11-10. Ralph Garr’s bases clearing triple and Bill Naharodny’s 3-run homer helped closed the gap. By the end of the 5th it was deadlocked at 12-12. The visitor’s plated 2 in the 6th and another in the 9th while holding the ChiSox scoreless to complete the sweep with a 15-12 wild one.
