game on

Even though Joe Crede had the game winning RBI with his HR in the fourth, the game was won by the White Sox pitching. Contreras did an outstanding job through 7 with Cotts and Jenks nailing it down. The 'Stros had runners on 1st and 3rd with no outs in the 8th and not only could they not get a ball in the outfield to tie the game, they didn't even put one in play as Ensberg, Lamb (why isn't Burke pinch hitting here?) and Bagwell all struck out swinging, blown away by fastballs. After adding an insurance run in the bottom of the 8th, Houston went down easily in order in the 9th.

Its always fun to second guess when a team loses. Here’s an article from ESPN with some questionable calls made by Phil Garner during Game 1 of the World Series. Game 2 pits Buehrle against Pettitte in some cold rainy weather in Chicago. Look for another low scoring game.
