|Bransfield delivers big, late double.|
Deacon Phillippe returns to the mound in an attempt to even up the series, 3-3, and force a game 7. To do it, they will have to do it on enemy turf in Chicago.
The game would end up being a doozy, as they Pirates' heart of the order goes quiet & hitless in eight at-bats, even though Clarke drew two walks, Wagner one. In fact the entire team would only go on to four hits.
It was their 4th hit, that would be the game's deciding factor, Kitty Bransfield's RBI double off of Chicago's Jimmy Callahan (who came in to relieve), scoring in Honus Wagner. Callahan would end up walking 3 in only 2.2 innings, to earn his 2nd loss of the series. Deacon Phillippe did his best in seven innings for the Bucs to keep them in this one, allowing 5 hits & 2 runs; He is now 2-1 in the series with a 1.88 ERA.
The White Sox have used Callahan a lot this series, and Griffith is likely not going to start in Game 6. The nod will likely go to Roy Patterson, who has been terrific this World Series, and even though he had 20 wins this season, he had the highest ERA among the trio with a 3.37 ERA.
The Pirates will go with southpaw Jesse Tannehill, who had a great start in Game 3 against the White Sox, and will face 5 regulars that bat left in the lineup.
