It was a great finish at Comiskey Park as the Houston White Sox pulled off a
dramatic comeback beating the St. Louis Twins by the count of 9 to
8.
 
Houston had the winning rally in the 9th inning when they tallied 4 runs on 4
hits.  The big moment was provided by Bob Watson who electrified Comiskey
Park when he banged out a single scoring two baserunners.  Despite scoring in
5 separate innings, St. Louis could not get the win.  
 
Joe Sambito(2-2) got credit for the victory, pitching 3 innings and allowing 4
runs. Ron Schueler(0-1) was charged with the loss in relief.  
 
Sambito and Jose Cruz were really whooping it up in the clubhouse after the
great come from behind victory.  As Terry Cochran noted, 'A win like this one
can do wonders for a team's attitude.' Everyone shares in the joy - the fans,
the players - even you guys - it's better than winning by a dozen runs!'
