The Chicago White Sox beat the Houston Astros 5-3 in the first game of the World Series on Saturday evening. Neal Cotts and Bobby Jenks got out of an eighth-inning jam, Joe Crede hit a go-ahead homer and saved two runs with a pair of diving stops and the White Sox beat the Houston Astros 5-3 on Saturday night in Chicago's first World Series game since 1959. On a night when 43-year-old Roger Clemens hoped to become the oldest pitcher to win a World Series game, the Rocket hobbled off after just two innings, done in by the hamstring injury that has hampered him since early September. Winner Jose Contreras allowed the Astros three runs in seven-plus innings in their first ever World Series game. He tied a Series record by hitting three batters.
