The Chicago White Sox jumped on Jim Kaat in the early innings and Joel Horlen scattered 9 hits over 7 1/3 innings as the Chisox held on to defeat the Minnesota Twins 5 to 4. Harmon Killebrew's solo homerun in the 7th helped to end Horlen's day on the mound, but Bob Locker followed and closed out the 8th and 9th innings to capture his 8th save.
The Sox accumulated 9 hits on the evening with Don Buford, Ken Berry and Jerry Adair each collecting 2 hits a piece. The fourth inning saw the Palehose plate 3 runs with Berry singling, Duane Josephson tripling and scoring Berry. Jerry Adair and Ronnie Hansen later doubling and each driving in a run. 12,200+ fans saw Joel Horlen improve his record to 5 - 0 on the season and the Sox record is now 19 - 8.
