The Morning After: Comebacks Fall Short For Sox, Cubs

By Marcus Gilmer in News on May 21, 2010 3:00PM

Sox Fall Short To Angels
The White Sox battled back from a big early hole but still fell just short of a comeback win in losing to the Angels 6-5. The Angels roughed up Sox starter Jake Peavy for six runs over six innings. Down 6-1 in the bottom of the eighth, the Sox put together a rally, scoring four runs. Gordon Beckham got a two-run single and then A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run ground rule double to bring the Sox to within one with the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position, but the Sox couldn't bring those runners home. The Sox will try to turn things around when they start a little interleague play tonight at The Cell by welcoming in the Marlins for a weekend series (7:10 p.m., WCIU)

Cubs' Falter Against Phillies
Despite their own valiant comeback attempt, the Cubs' lost to the Phillies 5-4 and snapped their four-game winning streak. Down 4-1 late, the Cubs put together three runs across the seventh and eighth frames, including solo homers from Derrek Lee and Kosuke Fukudome, to tie the game at 4-4. But John Grabow once again failed to hold the fort down, giving up a few walks and an RBI single to allow the Phillies to swipe this one away. The Cubs now head to Texas where their interleague series involves the Rangers, starting the weekend series off tonight (7:05 p.m., CSN)
