White Sox Sat Mar 28 2009

White Sox fall to Cubs.

The White Sox took on the Cubs in their final meeting of the Cactus League and it was over before it even got started. White Sox starter Clayton Richard only lasted one-third of an inning giving up seven-runs as 11 Cub batters came to the plate in the first inning. The White Sox lose 9-4.

The White Sox did make it respectable,however, as Josh Fields hit a two-run double in the fourth. Carlos Quentin had a pair of singles and Brian Anderson hit a solo home run (4) in the seventh. They drop to 12-16-1 this spring. The Cubs took the spring series 3-2.

The next time these two will meet will be during interleague play at Wrigley in June. The all time record stands at 33-33 between the two with the White Sox outscoring the Cubs 323-322.

The White Sox take on the Dodgers today at 3:05 p.m. CT.
