Chicago brought 2 runs across the plate in the 4th inning. The critical plate appearance was by Greg Walker who deflated the mood of the partisan fans when he lifted one out of the park for a two run home run. Gene Nelson(10-11) got relief help from Bob James who was excellent in relief and gained credit for his 23rd save.
Bruce Kison(2-3) suffered the loss. He gave up 7 hits and 3 walks in 7 and 1/3 innings. 'I struggled a bit out there tonight,' Nelson said, 'but I toughed it out and we got the win.'
