White Sox squeak past Astros and sweep World Series
Willie Harris scored on a Jermaine Dye RBI single in the eighth inning, and that would be enough to give the Chicago White Sox a 1-0 win and a World Series sweep over the Houston Astros on Wednesday.
The White Sox won this game as -131 favorites on the road. The game’s final score fell well UNDER the posted total (7).
Dye finished the game with three hits and a RBI and was named the 2005 World Series MVP.
Freddy Garcia shut out the Astros through seven innings of work, allowing only four hits, three walks and struck out seven to collect the victory for Chicago.
Brandon Backe couldn’t have pitched any better for the Astros, shutting out the ChiSox in seven innings pitched, allowing just five hits, walking none and striking out seven in a no-decision.
