In a close game it was the Houston White Sox 4, the Milwaukee Dodgers 2 in 10
innings at Dodger Stadium.
 
The score was knotted at 2 after nine innings. Finally, Houston prevailed in
the 10th inning.  Jose Cruz led off and he lined a single.  Cruz got a good
lead and stole second.  Cesar Cedeno was the next batter, but he struck out.
One out later, Oscar Gamble came to the plate and popped a two-run clout over
the fence.  Houston had 8 hits for the game and Milwaukee had 3.  
 
The victory was credited to Joe Sambito(4-2) who went 2 and 2/3 innings,
allowing no runs. Elias Sosa(2-1) was the losing pitcher in relief.
