2005 ALCS, Game 2: Angels at White Sox
October 12, 2005: 2005 ALCS, Game 2: Los Angeles Angels 1 at Chicago White Sox 2, F -- Mark Buehrle's complete-game domination might have been overshadowed by the idea that Game 2 of the 2005 ALCS was the night when the White Sox caught one of the biggest breaks in postseason history. With the game tied at 1 in the ninth and Angels reliever Kelvim Escobar slicing and dicing his way through the White Sox lineup, A.J. Pierzynski appeared to swing and miss for Escobar's fifth strikeout in three innings and a trip to bonus baseball. Replays showed Eddings made a motion to the side with his right arm for the swing, and then pumped his hand as to signify the third out. But Pierzynski never heard Eddings call him out, and after taking a step back toward the White Sox dugout, he raced down to first base. Catcher Josh Paul, the former White Sox backstop, who was in the game when starting catcher Jose Molina was run for in the eighth, rolled the ball back toward the field, allowing Pierzynski to reach first without a play. Impassioned pleas from the Angels and manager Mike Scioscia, as well as a check with crew chief Jerry Crawford, followed the play but Pierzynski stayed put. Pablo Ozuna ran for Pierzynski and promptly swiped second base, coming home with the deciding tally on Joe Crede's 0-2 double walk-off the left-field wall, and evened the American League Championship Series at 1-1. In hindsight, it appears to be the moment that catapulted the White Sox into their first World Series appearance in 88 years.moreless
