Cubs “sweep” White Sox, finally

Cubs 7-8 line

Full Box Score

This should have happened a month ago, but because of rain Cubs fans had to wait another month for full bragging rights.  The Cubs pounded the White Sox for the fourth straight game the result was a four game season sweep.  The Cubs offense had it going late as they pounded out thirteen hits and scored eight runs, six of those runs coming in the eighth and ninth inning to break it open.  Alfonso Soriano is putting on a show for the rest of baseball, he was 3-for-4 with his thirteenth home run of the season, a walk, two stolen bases, a double, and three runs scored.  Soriano’s trade value is climbing with each passing day, and a game like last night shows teams that are interested that this guy isn’t done.  Speaking of trade value, Matt Garza got the start and was brilliant once again going seven innings giving up two runs, one earned, on five hits while striking out six to pick up his fifth win of the season.
