Senators Take 2 from Struggling ChiSox

Will the White Sox win another game? That's what the pessimists are saying, as the struggling team just dropped its 11th game in a row to start the month of May. The White Sox had a veritable run explosion in Game 1 of the series, scoring 6 runs after only scoring 5 in the previous 6 games. Unfortunately normally stalwart hurler Wilbur Wood failed to hold the 1-run lead he inherited in the 7th, and the Senators scored a total of 8 runs to take Game 1. Washington 3B Ken McMullen went 2 for 5 with a pair of dingers to pace the Senators.

In Game 2, Senators' Chuck Bertaina out dueled Sox Tommy John to win a close 2-1 affair. The Senators rode a 4 for 4 performance from RF Bowens to a 2-0 lead through 8. The White Sox got to reliever Darold Knowles in the 8th, as c Duane Josephson tripled and scored on a Buddy Bradford ground out. Dick Bosman came on in relief to yield a single to White Sox 2b Sandy Alomar Sr, who promptly stole 2nd. Bosman got Jerry McNertney to ground out, and reliever Dave Baldwin came on in the 9th to stymie Sox hitters and pick up his first save of the season.
