Pierzynski hit his triple in the fourth inning and scored on Lillibridge's bunt single as the Sox jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

Starlin Castro hit an RBI single for the Cubs in the top of the fifth to make it 3-1 White Sox, but Lillibridge would get the run back in the bottom of the inning when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.
