Tom Seaver pitched a gem to lead Chicago to a 2-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Chicago, now 3-2, has gotten their season off to a good start.
The White Sox got a big at-bat from catcher Carlton Fisk. For the game, Fisk was 1 for 3. In the bottom of the fourth, with a runner on 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 5th hit of the season gave Chicago a 2-1 lead.
"We put it together today and came out with the win," Seaver said in postgame remarks. "That's the main thing."
