Cubs Sweep Sox

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Jun 23, 2008 4:17PM

Ozzie Guillen didn't like Wrigley Field before. He certainly doesn't like it any better today after his White Sox dropped all three games to the Cubs in the first installment of the crosstown showdown.

Aramis Ramirez helped the Cubs come from behind to win 4-3, with two home runs that included the ninth-inning walk-off.

The Cubs didn't wait until the end of the game to take a lead on Saturday, jumping out to an early lead after erupting for nine runs in the fourth inning. Jim Edmonds hit two home runs in the inning -- becoming just the third Cub ever to do that. Cubs took Saturday's game 11-7.

Ryan Dempster pitched a great game on Sunday by allowing just one run in eight plus inningsm and while Eric Patterson and Ramirez again supplied the bats.

Cubs and their fans are certainly holding their heads up high this week, while the Sox and their fans will be seeking revenge. Our two teams face off for round two this coming weekend, this time at the Cell. Chicagoist can't wait!
