White Sox Top Cleveland in Home Opener
The White Sox scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th to eke out a win over the Indians at Comiskey Park. Cleveland drew first blood against White Sox starter Joe Horlen with a run in the 3rd, and it looked for a long time like that would be enough for Indians starter Sonny Siebert. It took until the 5th inning for the White Sox to get their first hit, and the Sox had only managed 4 hits as Siebert took the mound in the 9th nursing the 1-run lead. After sandwiching 2 outs around a Tommy McCraw single, Siebert appeared to tire. He yielded a walk to Pete Ward, a single to pinch hitter Don McNertney, and finally a walk off single to Duane Josephson.
