2-Point Diversion: Cubs Win, Sox Lose, 'Hawks Head to San Jose

2-Point Diversion is Tailgate's most awesome drop of information for the morning on Chicago Sports talk. Gather 'round the water cooler and spread the knowledge and join us on Twitter @GBTailgate.

White Sox Fall to Twins, Cubs Take One From Marlins

The White Sox fell 3-2 to the Minnesota Twins yesterday afternoon in "da 'Sota." John Danks gave up 3 runs and that was all the Twins needed to tame the South Siders. Meanwhile, at Wrigley, the Cubs finally won a game. Carlos Marmol nailed the save but gave up a run in the process. This friends, is what we call progress. I know, it's crazy, just trust me, this is much better than not scoring any runs and wasting gems from pitchers.

Next Stop, San Jose.

Toews, Kane and the rest of the gang flew straight from Vancouver to San Jose to prepare for their Western Conference Finals tilt with the Sharks. As of press time it's unclear whether the San Jose P.A. guy has a copy of Chelsea Dagger or not. [frowny face emoticon]
