On May 11, the Chicago Sky (1-1) set a franchise record in margin of victory (33 points) by crushing the New York Liberty (1-1) 83-50 at Wintrust Arena in a Commissioner's Cup game, according to a press release.
It was the Liberty's lowest point total since they scored 46 on Aug. 5, 2014. Dana Evans led the Sky with 15 points as the team featured a balanced attack.
Olympic champion and former Sky player Stefanie Dolson and Liberty assistant coach Olaf Lange returned for the first time since last season's championship. (The ring ceremony will take place Tuesday, May 24.)
The Sky will now start a three-game road trip starting Saturday, May 14, against the Minnesota Lynx.
In San Diego, the Chicago Cubs (11-19) defeated the Padres (20-12) 7-5 in California on May 11.
Playing against his hometown Padres for the first time, first baseman Alfonso Rivas hit a tie-breaking two-run single in the eighth inning to lift Chicago, according to ESPN.
Willson Contreras homered for the Cubs, who took two of three from the Padres after arriving in town with a season-high, five-game losing streak.
The Chicago White Sox's May 11 game against the Cleveland Guardians was postponed due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests within Cleveland's organization, the MLB noted.
The team announced that manager Terry Francona, bench coach DeMarlo Hale, other uniformed personnel and some traveling support staff all tested positive that morning, prompting the postponement. Major League Baseball will provide a rescheduling update when it becomes available.
The White Sox now start a four-game series at home against the New York Yankees that will take place May 12-15.
