Royals Fail to Wash White Sox
ONE – The bottom 4 hitters in the White Sox
order drove the ball over the wall as Chicago took the opener, 10-2. Claudell Washington (9), Greg Pryor (2), Milt May (5) and Jim
Morrison (3) all blasted home runs. Washington
and Pryor had 3 hits. Ken Kravec (10-9) earned double figures
in wins with 7 strong innings.
GAME TWO – Jim Morrison (4) hit an 0-2 pitch with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th over the left field wall to tie the game at 2-2. In the 10th, Pryor singled through a drawn in infield to score Jorge Orta with the winning run.
GAME THREE – Morrison was again up with 2 outs in the B9 and the ChiSox trailing by one, 4-3. He put a charge into a Larry Gura (9-7) pitch, but this one stayed in the ball yard and Willie Wilson caught it to allow KC to avoid the sweep. George Brett singled home Amos Otis after his RBI double in the 7th for the difference makers for the Royals. Gura notched the complete-game win.
