On May 9, one Chicago MLB team halted its losing streak while the other had its winning streak snapped.
In San Diego, the Chicago Cubs (10-18) blanked the Padres (19-11) 6-0 as the North Siders racked up 11 hits to end a five-game skid.
Pitcher Kyle Hendricks came within one out of a three-hit shutout for the Cubs, ESPN noted. He struck out seven and walked one to improve to 8-2 overall against San Diego and 5-1 at Petco Park.
As for the Chicago White Sox (14-14), the Cleveland Guardians (15-14) came back to stun them 12-9 in 11 innings at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Guardians' Josh Naylor hit a tying grand slam with two outs in the ninth and a three-run homer in the 11th to complete the unlikely comeback, according to ESPN. Naylor also had a run-scoring double in the eighth and finished with eight RBI for the Guardians, who stunned Chicago by erasing an 8-2 deficit in the ninth aided by two White Sox errors.
"Brutal," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. "Had a chance to put it away. That's just a brutal loss, to give up six runs like that and a couple chances to win offensively. It's a tough loss. It's as tough as you're going to have."
Both Chicago team continues their respective series Tuesday, May 10.
