White Sox Win
One down and three to go. Anxious moments tonight but we held on thanks to Joe Crede’s glovework and great relief pitching from Neal Cotts and Bobby Jenks.
The White Sox bullpen has not allowed a run in the postseason, working 10.0 scoreless IP.
Chicago has won its last five games since losing to the Angels in Game 1 of the ALCS. The Sox have won 13 of their last 14 dating to the regular season.
According to reports, the team that wins Game 1 of the World Series goes on to win the series 61 percent of the time.
This was the first White Sox victory in the World Series since Oct. 6, 1959 (Game 5) when the Sox beat Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers, 1-0, in Los Angeles. This was our first home victory since Game 1 of the 1959 World Series.
