Cleveland 12, White Sox 6
Both the White Sox and Cleveland's bats heated up along with the weather. Unfortunately, Felipe Paulino and the Sox bullpen couldn't keep the Indians in check. The Tribe broke the game open in the late innings with two runs in the seventh and four in the ninth, while Paulino allowed six runs and three homers in five innings and Ronald Belisario took the loss with two runs in 1-1/3 innings. Adam Eaton had a homer and was 2-for-3 at the plate while Adam Dunn drove in two for the pale hose.
St. Louis 10, Cubs 4
The Cubs won the opener at Busch Stadium Friday night but the Cardinals ensured the North Siders wouldn't have a chance at a sweep Saturday. Carlos Villanueva essentially threw batting practice to the redbirds Saturday. He only lasted three innings and allowed nine runs on 10 hits. Chris Rusin took over for Villanueva and held St. Louis in check the rest of the way but the Cubs lineup couldn't bounce back from the hole in which they were tossed.
Nashville 7, Blackhawks 5
The Blackhawks ended the regular season in Music City Saturday with a two-game losing streak on their hands thanks to the Predators. Antti Raanta was peppered with 32 shots on goal and allowed six goals to get past him. (Shea Weber added an empty netter to cap Nashville's scoring.) But the Hawks were up to the challenge and tied the score at 5 in the third period with an Andrew Shaw goal.
