Wrong headline. Should be ‘Despite Bobby Jenks’ latest meltdown, Sox take series finale.”

BTW, here’s Aaron Gleeman:

Bobby Jenks did his best to blow it [5-1 lead] in the ninth inning, allowing three runs to score and putting two runners on base without recording an out, but then Indians manager Manny Acta went into small-ball mode.Acta ordered a bunt, which a) gave a struggling pitcher his first out, and b) opened up first base so the White Sox could intentionally walk the Indians’ best hitter, Shin-Soo Choo. Jenks then struck out Austin Kearns and got Russell Branyan to fly out, escaping with a 5-4 win.

Guillen was probably sitting in the clubhouse, watching on television and thanking Acta for the help.
