The Chicago White Sox got on the board first, but it's their rivals to the north that take a 2-1 lead into the sixth inning on Tuesday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Cubs starter Travis Wood is in-line to pick up his first victory. He's allowed just three hits and one run while striking out five and walking four White Sox batters thus far.
White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez hit a groundrule double to score Alex Rios in the second inning. The Cubs would answer in the third when center fielder David DeJesus singled to right field to score catcher Geovani Soto and Tony Campana.
White Sox starter Jake Peavy has allowed two runs, but both are unearned.
