White Sox closer Sergio Santos locked down his 13th save of the year in the 3-2 win over the Cubs and looked like he was back to form.
The Cubs sat through a one hour and 54 minute rain delay before losing game two of the Crosstown Classic 3-2.
Paul Konerko is the sixth White Sox’s player to homer in five straight games and the first since Carlos Lee in 2003.
The White Sox and Cubs resumed play Tuesday night after a one hour, 54 minute rain delay at U.S. Cellular Field.
Jake Peavy and Gordon Beckham have been out of the lineup for very different reasons, but both will be extremely happy when they take the field Wednesday.
As the outcry for Dayan Viciedo to be called up from Triple-A Charlotte gets louder, the question quickly becomes: Who would he replace on the 25-man roster?
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen passed the baton back to General Manager Kenny Williams concerning the imminent call-up of Triple-A outfielder Dayan Viciedo.
Gordon Beckham will sit for the third straight game tonight as the White Sox take on Matt Garza and the Cubs.
The White Sox really missed an opportunity to pile on Carlos Zambrano. It’s been a trend for the Sox lately that they’re falling behind with first pitch fastballs.
The White Sox and Cubs played in front of a crowd of roughly 36,000 on Monday night as the North Siders got big games from Starlin Castro and Carlos Pena in a 6-3 victory in the first game of the 2011 series.
One thing was obvious Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field: It didn’t feel like a Cubs-White Sox game.
Through the first 79 games of the White Sox-Cubs interleague series, only three wins separate the two teams, White Sox have won 41 and the Cubs have won 38. As close as the series has been, it seems as if it’s lost some intensity.
Starlin Castro’s two-run single in the third and solo homer in the sixth pulled the Cubs into a tie while Carlos Pena’s three-run homer won it for the Cubs.
Ozzie Guillen was ejected from Monday night’s game against the Cubs after arguing a fair-foul call in the sixth inning.
The story before the game was how would Carlos Zambrano react to his welcome at U.S. Cellular Field. Turns out, it wasn’t a problem at all.
When the Marlins slapped the interim tag on Jack McKeon, it left open the possibility of Guillen taking over as the Marlins manager after this season.
It’s a safe bet to say that, at times, Ozzie Guillen can be a distraction for a team. Whether it’s Twitter messages from him son or calling the Minnesota Twins “a bunch of midgets,” there’s rarely a dull moment. But he also has the unwavering loyalty of his players.
If your team wins, take some joy and don’t stop the fun banter, but deep down you know who you hate and it isn’t the Cubs or the Sox.
There have been plenty of memorable moments and intense games during the relatively brief history of the White Sox-Cubs rivalry. However, this year’s series may be lacking a little of usual anticipation.
Tonight we start our biannual ritual of the White Sox versus the Cubs. Some say the novelty has faded after all these years and there probably is something to that. But the ballparks will be filled (maybe?) for a few days to make the beer distributors happy.
