Soxtober surprise: Journeyman Geoff Blum the hero as White Sox win longest World Series game in history

Here's a great story: A guy who's bounced around from team to team the last six years, Geoff Blum, hits a two-out home run in the top of the 14th inning to put the White Sox in front of the Astros--placing the South Siders in almost complete control of the World Series. The Sox are up 3 games to none over Houston and are poised to grab their first World Series crown since 1917.

Time-wise it was the longest game in World Series history--innings wise, it matched a 1916 World Series game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox. Babe Ruth pitched all fourteen for Boston.
