Though the Crosstown Series doesn’t have the sparkle it once had, the series still brings some excitement and bragging rights, and these games do count in the standings, as both teams need to string together some wins.
Speaking of wins, the White Sox are coming off a win Sunday against the Cleveland Indians by a 4-3 score, as Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning.
The White Sox are 15-17 overall, 4-6 in their past 10 games. Since two games of this Crosstown Series are away from US Cellular Field, the White Sox are 6-10 in road games.
The Cubs are last in the NL Central at 11-18 overall, seven games under the .500 mark. They are also 4-6 in their past 10 games, coming off a 5-4 loss Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals.
