The Cubs five-game win streak came to a halt on Sunday afternoon, falling to the White Sox in the series finale 5-3.
Javy Baez: 1 for 4, 2 RBI
Ian Happ: 1 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Kyle Hendricks: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
How it Happened
This game looked to be on pace for a Cubs win with another strong start in the first inning. Ben Zobrist was walked on four pitches to start the inning and quickly made it to third base with two wild pitches from the White Sox’ Giolito. Shortly after, Anthony Rizzo was issued a four-pitch walk with runners at first and third with one out. Javy Baez then hit an RBI single into left-center scoring two, giving Kyle Hendricks a 2-0 lead to work with. “The Professor” was not quite on his best game but was solid allowing three earned runs over six innings. After the White Sox tied up the game 2-2 in the third, Ian Happ hit an RBI double in the fourth inning giving the Cubs the 3-2 lead. Two runs in the sixth and one in the seventh would put the White Sox up 5-3. The score would stay the same with a lack of offense, as the Cubs ended up falling.
One Great Moment
Different uniform? That’s no problem for Javy Baez turning yet another astonishing play at second for the out with the sliding catch and perfect throw. It’s just another “Javy Highlight” that’s “One Great Moment” worthy.
