Postgame Report: White Sox 9, Cubs 3

by Jordan Lazowski

Break out your brooms, Sox fans – Crosstown Cup Edition.

In a night that was threatened by rain all night, the White Sox’ bats brought the thunder to the tune of five first-inning runs and four more after that.

The night started with three home runs from Tim Anderson, Eloy Jimenez, and Andrew Vaughn, giving the South Siders a 5-0 lead before Dylan Cease even took the mound. They would add on later via a second Eloy Jimenez homer, an Eloy Jimenez two-run double, and an Andrew Vaughn RBI single.

All told, nine runs were more than enough on a night where Dylan Cease was solid, Reynaldo Lopez turned in two great innings, and Ryan Tepera and Jose Ruiz came in to slam the door.

With the win, the White Sox capture just their third sweep of the Cubs on the North Side in franchise history. They are 66-46, 20 games above .500 and remain 10.5 games up on the Cleveland Indians in the division.

W: Dylan Cease (9-6) | L: Zach Davies (6-9)

Savant Leaders

Notable Performances

Dylan Cease: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 10 K

Cease lost his command a bit in the second inning, throwing 31 pitches in the process, but bounced back with quality innings late where it looked like he really found his groove. 10 of his 15 outs came via the strikeout, and he got 13 swinging strikes – good for a 37% Whiff Rate tonight.

Eloy Jimenez: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 2B, 5 RBI

Thanks, Cubs!

Tim Anderson: 3-for-5

According to the broadcast, Tim Anderson asked for the night off to get things right. Apparently, he felt something click during batting practice and asked to be put back in the lineup. Smart move, TA7.

Andrew Vaughn: 2-for-3, HR, 3 RBI, R

Andrew Vaughn continues to impress at the plate. He took a high changeup out to LF in the first inning and added a run in the seventh to finish off his night. Though he had never played above High-A ball before this season, Vaughn continues to impress.

Next Game

The White Sox leave the Chicagoland area and head out to Minnesota, where they take on the Twinkies for the last time this season. Lucas Giolito will go for his ninth win against Beau Burrows of the Twins.

The game begins at 7:10 PM CT and can be viewed on ESPN or NBC Sports Chicago.
