Payback: White Sox sweep Cubs on South Side

Last weekend, the Chicago White Sox traveled north on the Red Line (metaphorically speaking, of course) for a three game series against the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs swept the Sox.

A few minutes ago, the White Sox evened the score by completing a three game sweep against the Cubs on Chicago's South Side in front of a national television audience. Three home runs, one each by Carlos Quentin, Brian Anderson, and a two-run shot by Jim Thome, provided the offense--putting the Sox on top tonight 5-1.

Sox lefty Mark Buehrle pitched seven innings for the win, the Cubs could only score one unearned run. Fellow left-hander Sean Marshall got the loss.

Jon Miller and Joe Morgan, ESPN's play-by-play crew, seemed genuinely excited by the contest, which was much more competive than the final score indicated.

Both Chicago teams lead their divisions.
