Pedro Grifol, first-year manager for the Chicago White Sox, earned his first career victory on Thursday, stewarding his club through a tense 3-2 victory over the reigning World Series champion Houston Astros by resisting the urge to do too much when decision-making moments arose.

Grifol utilized one pinch-hitter by summoning rookie outfielder Oscar Colas with one out in the top of the seventh inning -- Colas responded with his first career hit -- and made three pitching changes after right-hander Dylan Cease pitched brilliantly into the seventh inning. Relievers Aaron Blummer, Kendall Graveman and Reynaldo Lopez weren't perfect, but they were effective enough.

The White Sox finished 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position and stranded 11 baserunners. But they delivered late. Yasmani Grandal tied it with a solo home run with two outs in the eighth inning and Andrew Vaughn hit a two-run double with one out in the ninth.

By letting the game play out and avoiding unnecessary personnel changes, Grifol tasted victory.

Dana’s Pick Chicago White Sox: +115
