With a ground ball to short and a throw to first base, the White Sox erased 88 years of waiting.

Chicago’s Southside team clinched its third World Series – and its first since 1917 – on this day in 2005.

Freddy Garcia pitched seven scoreless innings and Jermaine Dye’s two-out RBI in the eighth scored Scott Podsednik for the game’s only run.

Bobby Jenks came on for the save and forced a ground ball to shortstop Juan Uribe, who threw out pinch-hitting Orlando Palmeiro at first.

Relive the moment:

Garcia was 3-0 during the postseason and dazzled in Game 4 as he struck out seven while allowing only four hits. Houston batters were 0-11 with runners in scoring position.
