The game started off with Chicago taking the lead in the first when they scored 4 runs on 2 hits. That scoring would be all that was needed. The pitchers took over after the 3rd inning as neither team was able to score again.
Dennis Eckersley(15-8) got credit for the victory, pitching 8 innings and allowing 2 runs. Eckersley was helped out by Lee Smith who recorded his 27th save. John Denny(9-12) was the loser.
