Jeff Samardzija goes the distance and gives up a career low of 2 hits to win his 3rd game of the year. The "shark" also strikes out 8 and only walks two, and puts an end to the White Sox streak and gives the Cubs a 2 game winning streak after losing six straight.

The White Sox have spotty defense at times and Julio Borbon hits his first HR of the year a 2 run shot that put the Cubs up 3-0.  The Cubs top 4 spots in the lineup bang out all 9 of their hits. Jose Quintana takes the loss and moves to 3-2, giving up 4ER in 6 IP.

Next up for the Cubs, Sox Ace Chris Sale

The winds of change continued to push the Cubs back towards .500 in the Crosstown Classic all time history, now at 49 for the White Sox and 44 for the Cubs. Travis Wood continues to shine both on the mound and in the batter's box, this time hitting his 2nd HR of the year - a Grand Slam in fact off of Jake Peavy even. Homers abound for the Cubs in this typical hot and humid windblown game, with dingers from Travis Wood, Nate Schierholtz, and Luis Valbuena.

Jake Peavy gets hit pretty hard by giving up 8 hits in 4 innings, surrendering 6 runs while walking none (normally a great sign when it's that windy) and striking out 3. Konerko and De Aza both picked up two hits, while Konerko knocked in two of the Sox's runs.

Cubs' hot hitters of the day were Wellington Castillo (2-4), Luis Valbuena (3-4, HR), Nate S chierholtz (HR), and Travis Wood (2-4, HR, 4 RBI - and hitting .292 for the year).

I'm sure Dioner Navarro was licking his chops when he saw the wind blowing the way it was, and with him hitting 3 HR's yesterday.

With the game tied at 2 through seven innings the Cubs bust the game open in the top of the 8th against the Sox's bullpen hurlers of Thornton and Jones with four singles, two walks and a double. Luis Valbuena, a last minute replacement for Wellington Castillo who was 'under the weather' (good description for a game that was once again delayed by rain), knocked in three runs. Alfonso Soriano continued his hot hitting going 3-4, with another HR, and Matt Garza displayed all he has to offer to the scouts who were there to see his 'stuff' in case the Cubs decide to trade him. Garza went 7IP, giving up 5 hits, 2 runs (1 earned) and striking out 6.

Hector Santiago of the Sox throws 5 1/3, giving up 5 hits, 2ER, walks 2 and strikes out 3. Rookie catcher Josh Phegley becomes the Sox player to hit a HR in the first pitch he saw at U.S. Cellular Field, his 2nd dinger in as many games.

Q: How many Chicago White Sox does it take to change a tire?
A: One, unless it's a blowout, in which case they all show up
