Morning Box Score: Sox Split With Tribe, Castro Makes Cubs History in Loss

By Chuck Sudo in News on Sep 21, 2011 1:11PM

Milwaukee 5, Cubs 1

It's well-established by now that any Cubs rebuilding plan will include Starlin Castro as part of the foundation. Castro's solo home run was the only bright spot in last night's loss at Wrigley Field, but it allowed the shortstop to set a new record for hits by a Cubs player in his first two seasons. The homer, which was also Castro's 197th hit of the season, gives him 336 in his first two seasons. Castro also expressed a wish to reach 200 hits at Wrigley Field. He has today's regular season home finale to do so. Randy Wells took the loss for the Cubs, giving up all five runs in six innings of work.

White Sox 5, Cleveland 4

Rookie Dylan Axelrod bent but didn't break in the nightcap of a day-night doubleheader at Progressive Field. Axelrod did just enough in 4-2/3 innings of work for the Sox bullpen to hold, while Gordon Beckham set a career high with three doubles in a game, scored a run and drove in one as the Sox earned a split.
