Morning Box Score: Cubs Rout Cards, Sox Win Wild One in Anaheim

By Chuck Sudo in News on May 12, 2011 3:30PM

Cubs 11, Cardinals 4

Not even a rain delay could cool off the Cubs' bats last night. The Chicago National League Ballclub laid some major wood to Cardinals pitching after a 530minute rain delay in the third inning put a temporary halt to the game. Starlin Castro paced the 17-hit attack by going 4-for-four at the plate and driving in three runs, including two in a six-run third inning. The 11 runs were more than enough for Matt Garza to pick up his second win of the season. The Cubs gor for a series win this afternoon (1:20 p.m., WGN-AM, CSN)

White Sox 6, Angels 4 (10 innings)

It was a night of firsts for the White Sox. Jake Peavy made his season debut, giving up four runs over six innings. But the Sox tied the game with two runs in the ninth, while the game winning run was scored on a wild pitch while the Angels tried to intentionally walk Paul Konerko. Konerko also provided a fielding gem to seal Matt Thornton's first save of the season, fielding a Torii Hunter bunt and tossing the ball behind his back to Thornton for the putout. The win also gave the Sox their first back to back series wins of the season. The South Siders have a day off today before kicking off a weekend series against Oakland.
