Chicago scored the winning runs in the bottom of the 9th inning scoring 3 runs on 3 base hits. Ozzie Guillen started the inning off right when he doubled. Harold Baines followed and he ripped a base-hit knocking in a run. Greg Walker then bombed a two-run dinger giving Chicago the win much to the delight of the home town crowd. The game was a scoreless duel until the 8th inning.
The victory was credited to Juan Agosto(3-0) who went 1 and 2/3 innings, allowing no runs. Vern Ruhle(4-8) suffered the loss. He pitched 8 innings allowing only 5 hits and 1 walk.
