Game #254 - Boston Red Sox, 3 @ Chicago White Sox, 2
This game was pretty ugly, as the Red Sox grounded into four double plays and the White Sox hit into two of their own. Tony Armas started the scoring when his solo homer went over the wall in the second inning. A Carlton Fisk passed ball from Richard Dotson set up two more Boston runs in the sixth. Fisk made up for the gaff in the bottom of the eighth, knocking a home run that plated two. But Charlie Mitchell shut down the Southside in the bottom of the ninth, including a strikeout of Ron Kittle to end the game. It's the fifth loss in a row for Chicago.
