ChiSox Steer Past M's
ONE – Ross Baumgarten (3-7) earned a
complete-game 5-1 win over Mariners. A Larry
Cox (1) solo shot in the 5th was the lone blemish. Meanwhile Jorge Orta (6) launched a monster
rocket to CF to highlight a 4-run 7th for the ChiSox.
GAME TWO –
evened up the series with a complete-game 2-1 effort from Rick Honeycutt (4-4). The lefty threw 8 shutout innings until Chet Lemon (7) took him deep in the 9th.
The Mariners pushed across a pair of runs in the 3rd on a RBI single
from Ruppert Jones and a wild pitch
by Sox starter Rich Wortham (5-6).
GAME THREE – Lamar Johnson singled, slole second and scored on Alan Bannister’s base hit in the 10th to lift
to 2-1 win. Fred Howard (1-1) got
the W in relief. John Montague (0-5)
recorded his 5th blown save for the M’s.
GAME FOUR – An early see-saw contest saw Johnson score on a Milt May infield out in the 5th. It would be the last run scored as the White Sox won 7-6. Francisco Barrios (6-3) tossed 8 innings for the W. Steve Trout (2) retired the final hitters.
Jones led all hitters with 3 knocks.
