First baseman Bob Watson had 4 hits as the Houston White Sox bested the
Atlanta Athletics 7 to 3 at Oakland Coliseum.
 
Houston erupted with the game winning runs in the 9th inning as they scored 4
runs on 2 base hits.  The biggest moment was provided by Watson who deflated
the crowd as he depressed the partisan hometown fans with a grand slam home
run.  Houston won despite being out-hit by Atlanta 11 hits to 7.  
 
The win was credited to Joe Sambito(12-5) who went 2 innings allowing no runs.
Dave Campbell(2-2) was the losing pitcher in relief.  By surrending 4 runs in
1 inning his ERA jumped from 3.32 to 4.76.  
 
Watson was jubilant after the game 'Let me see a box-score' he joked, 'I want
to see how that game looks on paper.'
