White Sox bounce by Angels 2 -1.
A.J. Pierzynski's dropped-third-strike that led to the winning run.

Bizarre but we'll take it. Breaks go both ways. The ball probably didn't hit the ground but it was smart base running by A.J. I've heard many different versions and one is that the home umpire signaled the third strike but not the third out. Meaning he, (the umpire), thought it might have hit the ground. Luckily the third base umpire wasn't on top of the play. Whatever, one stolen base and a double later the series was tied 1 to 1.
By the way, we lost game one 3 to 2. Couldn't execute a sacrifice bunt (a little like the north side neighbors, the Cubs.) Anyway, game three is on Friday from the west coast.
