Cubs Vs. White Sox Score Update: North Siders Lead 6-1 In 6th Inning

Matt Garza is cruising and the Chicago Cubs' offense has smashed four home runs through six innings. This probably isn't what the Chicago White Sox expected when they welcomed the lowly Cubs to U.S. Cellular Field for the A.L. portion of the Crosstown Series. The North Siders have a 6-1 lead in the sixth inning on Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

All of the Cubs' runs have come via the long ball. Bryan LaHair got the scoring started in the third when he crushed a two-run homer off Sox starter Zach Stewart. Starlin Castro and Alfonso Soriano would each hit homers for the Cubs in the fifth inning. The White Sox responded with a homer of their own in the bottom half of the fifth when A.J. Pierzynski ripped his 12th dinger of the season. A solo shot from Geovani Soto in the top of the sixth made it 6-1 North Siders.

Garza has allowed four hits while striking out five thus far. Stewart was lifted after 5.2 innings after allowing nine hits and six earned runs.
