[[October 22]]: [[U.S. Cellular Field]], [[Chicago, Illinois]]
   
Playing in their first World Series home game since 1959, the White Sox took an early lead with a home run from [[Jermaine Dye]] in the first inning. The Sox scored two more in the second when [[Juan Uribe]] doubled in [[A.J. Pierzynski]] after [[Carl Everett]] had already scored on a groudout earlier in the inning. The Astros responded again in the next inning when [[Lance Berkman]] hit a double, driving in [[Adam Everett]] and [[Craig Biggio]]. In the White Sox half of the fourth, [[Joe Crede]] hit what turned out to be the game-winning home run. In the bottom of the eighth, [[Scott Podsednik]] hit a triple with Pierzynski on second. [[Roger Clemens]] recorded his shortest World Series start, leaving after the second inning with 53 pitches including 35 for strikes, due to a sore hamstring that he had previously injured (and caused him to miss his last regular season start) as the loss went to [[Wandy Rodríguez]]. [[José Contreras]] pitched seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits for the win, and [[Bobby Jenks]] earned the save to give the White Sox a 1-0 lead in the series. When Neal Cotts entered the game in the top of the 8th it marked the first time in 5 games that the White Sox had gone to their bullpen.
