Chicago Cubs Vs Chicago White Sox

Chicago White Sox Vs Chicago Cubs

Cubs score 6 runs in 2nd and beat White Sox, 10-8 | Cubs-White Sox Game Highlights 9/27/20

Sunday, August 8th, 2021 -07:08 PM EDT at Wrigley Field

The crosstown battle of Chicago has taken on a lot less importance since the Cubs dumped an enormous amount of talent at the trade deadline, but still, here we are with Sunday Night Baseball in Chicago.

The Cubs are entering a total rebuild. That was made obvious when they traded away any semblance of talent that might need to get paid in the next year or two at the trade deadline. Now, what they are left with is a team bereft of talent and/or guys they couldnt move who are running out the string. Its not pretty. They are 2-8 in their last ten games and tonight will try to compete with the White Sox by sending Kyle Davies to the hill. Davies cant be happy he didnt get moved, but he is still 6-8 with an ERA of 4.79 ERA, so well see what he can do.

The White Sox are not in the same universe as the Cubs. They are all-in on this season, having made a major trade with these very Cubs for all-world closer, Craig Kimbrel. They have been a bit up and down since the deadline, going 5-5 in their last ten games, but you still have to feel pretty confident about the ChiSox going forward. They have a dynamic offense, a pitching staff that has a mix of veterans and young talent, and a bullpen that is most likely the best back-end in all of baseball. Tonight we will see Dylan Cease on the mound. Cease is 8-6 with an earned run average of 3.92 this season.

Kyle Hendricks Rhp Vs Lance Lynn Rhp

Kyle Hendricks had one of his best starts of the year last Friday in Washington: seven innings, four hits, one run, one walk, three strikeouts. It was the only game the Cubs won in that series. Since May 1: 17 starts, 2.89 ERA, 1.170 WHIP, just 12 walks in 106 innings.

In his career vs. the Sox: eight starts, 3.74 ERA, 1.292 WHIP. Current White Sox are hitting .294 against him, with Jose Abreu being a nemesis .

Well hello old friend Lance Lynn! Hows it going since you left St. Louis?

Very well for Lynn this year, in fact, hes one of the biggest reasons the Sox are where they are and they recently signed him to a contract extension.

The Cubs used to face Lynn a lot when he was a Cardinal but have seen him only twice since he left them, once in 2018, once in 2019, and those results are largely irrelevant because… well, you know.

Jason Heyward has hit him pretty well 7-for-19 with two doubles. So theres that.

Major League Baseball is winding down for the year. Next year families will be planning road trips. Many American families often take in baseball games in the cities they stop along the way.

If your trip in 2012 brings you to Chicago, these slides should be useful.

While Chicago has two baseball teams, these teams are very different in their approach to the game and fans. I hope these slides clear up any questions.

Tony Sink’s Pick: Take Chicago

Chicago Cubs Vs Chicago White Sox Preview Friday 8/: 10 Ct

Friday notes…

  • STRIKEOUT WATCH vs. WHITE SOX: The Cubs struck out 45 times in the series against the Sox earlier this month at Wrigley Field. If they match that this weekend, that would give them 90, their most against any team this year except the Cubs four NL Central rivals.
  • STRIKEOUT WATCH SINCE THE SELLOFF: The Cubs have struck out in double figures in 16 of the 25 games since all the deadline trades were made, and have totaled 270 Ks in those 25 games, 10.8 per game. Prior to the trade deadline, the Cubs averaged 9.6 strikeouts per game .
  • STRIKEOUT WATCH, RECORD-SETTING EDITION: If the Cubs continue striking out at that 10.8 per game pace for the rest of the season, they will strike out 366 more times and have 1,620 for the season. The Cubs already lead MLB in batter strikeouts with 1,264 entering Fridays action. A season total of 1,620 would not only obliterate the franchise record , but would also break the MLB record .
  • STRIKEOUT WATCH, INDIVIDUAL EDITION: For now, Javier Báez still leads the 2021 Cubs in strikeouts with 131. Ian Happ is second with 119, Willson Contreras third with 116 and Patrick Wisdom fourth with 104.

Here are todays particulars.

The White Sox have hit 24 home runs in their last nine games against the Cubs, including five straight multi-homer efforts.

Keegan Thompson Rhp Vs Dallas Keuchel Lhp

Keegan Thompson made 27 relief appearances for the Cubs before he was sent down to stretch out to start. His only start since his recall, last Saturday vs. the Royals, was … okay, I guess, two runs in four innings. He was a bit shaky in the first two innings, allowing a run in each, then settled down. How that translates to tonight… no idea. Thompson threw 73 pitches in that game, perhaps he can be extended to 80 or so tonight.

He has never faced the White Sox and the only Sox player who has faced him is Cesar Hernandez , so theres that.

Dallas Keuchel has had an up-and-down year. Hes had some good starts, but has allowed four or more runs in 10 of his 25 starts, which seems like a lot.

In nine starts since July 1, hes got a 6.02 ERA and 1.399 WHIP and 11 home runs allowed in 49 innings. Thats definitely bad.

Current Cubs are hitting .221 against him. Austin Romine is 4-for-10. Thats all Ive got.

Patrick Wisdom Backed Alec Mills With Two More Homers And The Chicago Cubs Beat The Chicago White Sox For The First Time This Season Winning 7

Cubs vs. White Sox Game Highlights (8/27/21) | MLB Highlights

    The Canadian Press

Patrick Wisdom , The Canadian Press

CHICAGO With every long drive, every sharp play in the field, Patrick Wisdom is making the most of his best big league opportunity with the Chicago Cubs.

Wisdom backed Alec Mills with two more homers and the Cubs beat the Chicago White Sox for the first time this season, winning 7-0 on Saturday night.

What he’s doing is so impressive, Cubs manager David Ross said. When he touches the ball, it just doesn’t come down. It explodes off his bat.

Rafael Ortega connected for a grand slam against Lance Lynn as the fourth-place Cubs improved to 6-19 in August. They dropped their first four games against the crosstown White Sox this year, including an ugly 17-13 loss Friday night.

Mills worked into the ninth inning in his first win since Aug. 4. He left with one out and runners on first and second, and Codi Heuer finished the four-hitter against his former team.

Wisdom hit solo drives in the fourth and fifth innings in his fourth career multihomer game all coming this season. He also went deep twice Friday night on his 30th birthday.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he became the first rookie in franchise history to post consecutive multihomer games.

I think its just kind of slowing things down, you know, taking it pitch by pitch, said Wisdom, who also robbed Tim Anderson of a hit with a nice play at third in the third. I get frustrated with a certain at-bat and I got to flush it and move on.

Fight And Theme Songs

Nancy Faust became the White Sox organist in 1970, a position she held for 40 years. She was one of the first ballpark organists to play pop music, and became known for her songs playing on the names of opposing players . Her many years with the White Sox established her as one of the last great stadium organists. Since 2011, Lori Moreland has served as the White Sox organist.

Similar to the Boston Red Sox with “Sweet Caroline” , and the New York Yankees with “Theme from New York, New York“, several songs have become associated with the White Sox over the years. They include:


A historical regional rival was the St. Louis Browns. Through the 1953 season, the two teams were located fairly close to each other , and could have been seen as the American League equivalent of the CardinalsCubs rivalry, being that Chicago and St. Louis have for years been connected by the same highway . The rivalry has been somewhat revived at times in the past, involving the Browns’ current identity, the Baltimore Orioles, most notably in 1983.

The current Milwaukee Brewers franchise were arguably the White Sox’s main and biggest rival, due to the proximity of the two cities , and with the teams competing in the same American League division for the 1970 and 1971 seasons and then again from 1994 to 1997. The rivalry has since cooled off, however, when the Brewers moved to the National League in 1998.


The Ultimate Crosstown Rivalry: Chicago Cubs Vs White Sox

  • Pin

The Chicago Cubs and White Sox rivalry has been going on ever since the 1906 World Series game, in which the White Sox beat the Cubs in the first Crosstown Chicago rivalry World Series Game just six years after the White Sox moved to Chicago.

This game became the World Championship to prove who belonged in the Windy City. The Chicago White Sox at the time were labeled as the Hitless Wonders. This team was filled with veteran players that relied on strong pitching and low scoring. On the other hand, the Cubs were a young powerhouse team that was leading the league with 116 wins. The Cubs were heavily favored not just in their own city but by almost everyone in baseball. How did the 1906 World Series Game end? Well, if youre a die-hard Chicago baseball fan, then you know how that upset ended.
