White Sox Vs. Cubs Score Update: White Sox Sweep Cubs

A dominant pitching performance from Jay Peavy was all the Chicago White Sox needed to complete a sweep of the rival Chicago Cubs. Peavy pitched 6.1 shutout innings to help lead the White Sox to a comfortable 6-0 win at Wrigley Field.

With the win, Peavy improved his record to 5-1 this season. He struck out seven batters and allowed just three hits in a truly impressive effort. The White Sox offense gave Peavy strong run support, with three different guys hitting home runs. Adam Dunn continued his strong play with his 14th homer of the season, while Gordon Beckham and Tyler Flowers also hit home runs.

The Cubs struggled to generate consistent offense in the loss, recording just five hits. Paul Maholm saw his record fall to 4-3 after allowing five earned runs in 6.1 innings pitched.
