The White Sox hope their recent success against the Cubs continues.

The White Sox and Cubs resume their crosstown rivalry at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday night; the Sox swept the first series between these two teams back in mid-May. That sweep helped to spark a hot streak that would propel the White Sox into first place in the AL Central.

The situation on the other side of town has not improved since that first series -- the Cubs are 22-44 overall and playing for little more than bragging rights at this point.

Matt Garza (2-5, 4.04 ERA) will start for the Cubs on Monday, while the Sox will send Zach Stewart (1-1, 5.18 as a reliever) to the mound.

Game 1 Date & Time: Monday, June 18, 7:10 p.m. CT

TV: WCIU, CSN-Chicago
