White Sox beat Dodgers to reach finals (June 9)
As usual, the Sox jumped upfront 2-0 in the first after Sardinha walked, Karle singled and Halsey hit a double while facing Dodger's Ace Kang. The Sox added two more on the second behind singles by Zarur, a walk by McCabe and a 2-RBI double by Jack Young.
The Dodgers would bring in their star middle reliever, Ava Lawler, who efficiently and systematically silenced the White Sox bats for three innings, behind some amazing defensive plays by Poole, Sughrue, Courtney and Gogolin.
On their side, the White Sox defense flashed some leather in spectacular catches by Karle and Beliveau behind solid pitching by Mahoney and Young. The Sox added one insurance run on the top of the sixth when Sardinha walked and Karle drove him with a long double.
Easton Halsey came in for the save at the bottom of the sixth and overpowered the heart of the Dodgers lineup striking out the side.
