4 Tight Games Find Pale Hose Winning 3

GAME ONE – Ed Herrmann’s (2,3) 2nd HR of the day was a 2-run bomb to right in the B10 to lift the White Sox a 4-3 win over Minnesota. The Twins had gone ahead 3-2 in T10 when Tony Oliva’s IF ground out plated Ted Uhlaender. Rod Carew and Ken Berry also enjoyed wonderful days at the dish with 4 hits apiece.

GAME TWO – Bill Melton singled home Carlos May (5 hits) in B13 to send another extra-inning crowd at Comiskey home with smiles on their faces. The Pale Hose prevailed 9-8. This was a wild one with both teams scoring in large chunks and banging out 18 hits apiece. Chicago struck first with 4 runs in the 2nd. Buddy Bradford got things started with a 1-out double. After that, it was all 1-baggers that did the damage with Luis Aparicio’s bingo driving in 2. The Twins responded with 5 in the 5th. Johnny Roseboro and Leo Cardenas doubled in runs. The ChiSox tied the game at 5-5 when May singled in Ron Hansen. In the 12th, the Twins seemed to have the game in hand putting up a 3-spot. Charlie Manuel’s double was the highlight. But the Sox put 3 more of their own on the board in the B12. Three singles and 2 walks did most of the damage.

GAME THREE – Dave Boswell (7-8) yielded 2 runs and 2 hits in the 6th inning and that was it. His CG effort gave the Twins a 3-2 win. Tony Oliva’s (23) 8th inning solo shot was the difference.

GAME FOUR – Chicago wraps up 4-game series with a 4-3 victory. Bradford banged out 3 hits. Gary Peters (7-6) got the win. Wilbur Wood (10) recorded the save. Oliva’s (24) 2-run blast in the 6th was the games lone long ball.
