Jeff Sellers earned the win for Boston. He lasted 8 innings, allowing 2 earned runs on 6 hits, while striking out 2. With the win, he raised his record to 1-0. Bob Stanley got the save, the 2nd for him this season. Baylor had an important at-bat with a runner on 1st in the bottom of the sixth, when he hit a 2-run home run. The Red Sox went on to win.
Baylor called the win the result of "everyone being in sync." The White Sox fall to 4-8 and continue their tough start to the 1986 season.
