With Elmer Dessens looking good in his return from the DL and Jeff Kent's two-run homer, the Dodgers closed in on a win. But Yhency Brazoban couldn't lock down the ninth, giving up four runs in Los Angeles' fifth straight loss.
A.J. Pierzynski's walk-off homer capped a four-run ninth, rallying the White Sox past Los Angeles. A wild Freddy Garcia had six walks, but on a night Chicago honored its last World Series team, this year's White Sox delivered.
