Morning Box Score: Cubs Win Series But Lose Sunday To Cardinals, Sox Finally Pull A Win In Cleveland

By Michelle Meywes Kopeny in News on May 5, 2014 4:20PM


St. Louis 5, Cubs 4
The Cubs came out on top winning two of three against the Cardinals this weekend, but fell short of what would have been their first sweep against the division rivals since 2006. The Cubs squeaked out a 6-5 win on Friday, squashing Adam Wainright’s 25-inning scoreless streak, and home run hitters Junior Lake and Anthony Rizzo helped give the Cubbies their first series win of the season on Saturday, shutting out the Redbirds 3-0. The teams went into the ninth tied in the final game of the series, but it was a tough last inning for Hector Rondon. The Cubs reliever gave up two walks, loading the bases for Yadier Molina who hit a game-winning, two-run single.

White Sox 4, Cleveland 3
The White Sox walked away with a win against the Indians yesterday, keeping the Tribe from sweeping the series. Jose Abreu hit his 11th homer of the season on Friday, but it wasn’t enough to keep Cleveland from breaking their own six-game losing streak with a 12-5 win. Saturday wasn’t much better for Chicago as Indians ace Justin Masterson earned his first W of the year with a 2-0 victory. With the Sox down by two going into the ninth yesterday though, Dayan Viciedo rallied with a game-winning, three-run homer.

The Cubs and Sox face off at Wrigley tonight for the first game of the Crosstown Classic.
