CHICAGO (AP) — The birds-on-the-bat uniforms, the players in the other dugout, the opposing manager, it all looked familiar to Tony La Russa. Too familiar, in fact. The 76-year-old Hall of Fame manager of the Chicago White Sox found himself in a strange spot Monday night: Leading his club against the team he guided to a pair of World Series titles during a long, prosperous portion of his career, the St. Louis Cardinals. La Russa said the three-game series in Chicago would definitely be different, adding it would be a bit “distracting.” La Russa and the White Sox wound up with a 5-1 win in the opener.
