Another late night - really late this time. Try the wee hours way past midnight. Another unlikely homer at the end, too. And when it was finally over, after 5 hours and 41 minutes, the Chicago White Sox had won the longest game in World Series history and were on the cusp of quite a celebration. Geoff Blum broke through with a tiebreaking homer in the 14th inning and Chicago beat the Houston Astros 7-5 on Wednesday morning to move within a win of a sweep and its first title since 1917. "All three of these games - up and down," White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. "You think you're going to lose, you think you're going to win. It's been incredible. It's been a crazy Series." Indeed it has - just look who's hitting the big home runs. Chicago won Game 2 on a ninth-inning shot by Scott Podsednik, who didn't have a homer the entire regular season. Then it was Blum, a backup infielder and former Astro who waited on the bench all night before entering as part of a double switch in the 13th inning. "It's the stuff dreams are made of," he said.
