Freddy fab; Sox move to brink
Fall Classic a win away
Chicago's pitching and timely hitting kept the Angels in stitches. Paul Konerko's early three-run home run gave Freddy Garcia all the runs he would need. A.J. Pierzynski also homered before Chicago broke it open as Garcia delivered the Sox third straight complete game.

Halos seek answers
Little offense and early deficits remained problematic for the Angels as they moved within a loss of elimination. Ervin Santana lasted 4 1/3 innings and gave up five earned runs, three in the first. The Halos scored one in the second and another in the fourth, but had only six hits vs. Freddy Garcia.
