It’s still odd to me that the Cubs and White Sox face off on a Monday, usually it’s a series reserved for a weekend in June, but not this year. The Cubs are looking avenge a sweep by the White Sox earlier this year at Wrigley which marked the beginning of the end of the 2012 season for the Cubs. The Cubs have been playing decent baseball of that but it’s not resulting in wins, and ultimately that’s what matters the most. Just ask the White Sox, who are getting their fair share of wins lately as they sit atop the AL Central. No one expected the White Sox to be where they are right now, but thanks to the Tigers struggling out of the gate that’s where they sit. The Sox sit near the middle of the pack in runs scored and ERA in the American League, they are 6th in runs scored, and 8th in ERA. The Cubs have not had any success at US Cellular Field, losing nine of their last twelve games there. Full preview and breakdown after the jump.
