THIS QUARTET MADE CHICAGO ONLY THE SECOND TEAM TO GET FOUR STRAIGHT COMPLETE GAMES FROM ITS STARTERS IN THE POSTSEASON
PITCHES: 99 (71 strikes, 28 balls)
SKINNY: Working at his usual fast pace (the game lasted just two hours and 34 minutes), he allowed only two Angels past second base.
PITCHES: 118 (83 strikes, 35 balls)
SKINNY: Though not as efficient with his pitches as Buehrle, Garland (aided by a DP and a runner thrown out at third) faced two fewer batters.
PITCHES: 114 (76 strikes, 38 balls)
SKINNY: Though he faced more batters (34) and gave up more runs than any of his rotation mates did in their gems, he went the distance in the clincher after missing a complete game by only two batters in Game 1.
PITCHES: 116 (74 strikes, 42 balls)
SKINNY: He hadn't pitched in eight days (since the clincher in Boston) but showed no signs of rust, retiring the first four batters on eight pitches.
