White Sox Need Extra Frames to Get Past Red Sox

April 18, 1986

Chicago White Sox (7-3)00002003027100
Boston Red Sox (4-6)01300000116112

The Boston Red Sox got a sterling performance from pitcher Al Nipper, but the White Sox still prevailed, 7-6. Nipper was named the player of the game in a losing cause. He threw 7 innings of 5-hit ball. Chicago reliever Gene Nelson was the winner. His record is now 2-0.

Joe Sambito took the loss. Bobby Thigpen earned save number 1. The White Sox got a big at-bat from right fielder Harold Baines. For the game, Baines was 1 for 5 with a home run. He drove in 2 runs and scored once. In the top of the tenth, with a runner on 1st, he stroked a 2-run home run. His 3rd home run of the season gave Chicago a 7-5 lead.

 In postgame comments to the Chicago Daily News, Baines said, "If the effort is there, the wins will come." The Red Sox fall to 4-6 and continue their uneasy start to the 1986 season.
