Athletics Grab 2 of 3 from White Sox

GAME ONE A tiring Rick Langford (5-3) hung in there and got PH Rusty Torres to ground out with 2 White Sox aboard to preserve a 6-5 win for Oakland. Ralph Garr had 3 hits to lead a 12-hit Sox attack. The A’s scored their first two in the 1st on a Mitchell Page (5) 2-run blast. They scored their final pair in the 6th when Glenn Burke, Mickey Klutts and Mike Edwards tripled on triples (3 consecutive).

GAME TWO – Oakland scores a run in the 8th and one in the 9th to spoil a superb pitching effort by Ken Kravec. Wayne Gross’ double in the 9th plated Dave Revering with the game winner as the A’s won 2-1. Dave Heaverlo (3-2) grabbed the win in relief. Mike Proly (1-4) took the loss. White Sox have lost 6 straight.

GAME THREE – Pale Hose break losing streak in a big way with a 10-1 win. Rich Wortham (3-4) went the distance. Don Kessinger, Claudell Washington and Lamar Johnson all collected 3 hits. The Sox had 15 total safeties for the game, but no extra base hits. Johnson drove in 3. Matt Keough (2-8) was lit up for the Athletics.
