The Chicago White Sox will look to sweep their four-game season series in the Crosstown Cup against the Chicago Cubs this weekend at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The White Sox (22-22) took the first two games of the season series by scores of 3-1 and 4-3, earlier this month at Wrigley Field. The South Siders claimed the Crosstown Cup in 2021, winning the six-game series 5-1 with a three-game sweep on the North Side.
The Cubs (18-26) are coming off a four-game series split against the worst team in MLB: the Cincinnati Reds. The North Siders had won three straight for only the second time this season before losing 4-3 and 20-5 in Cincinnati. The Cubs have dropped six of their past nine games heading into the series against the White Sox.
The South Siders, who are favorites to win the AL Central, have struggled with consistency early on this season. The White Sox have only one winning streak of more than four games this campaign. They took three of six at the New York Yankees and against the Boston Red Sox this past week.
