Candace Parker gave a historic performance as the Chicago Sky (3-2) defeated the Washington Mystics (5-2) 82-73 on May 22 in D.C., a press release noted.

Parker—who made her 361st career start—finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists to become just the third player in WNBA history with multiple triple-doubles and the first with multiple regular-season triple-doubles. She joins teammate Courtney Vandersloot and WNBA legend Sheryl Swoops as the only players to have multiple triple-doubles.

Parker, at 36, is also the oldest WNBA player to achieve a triple-double, ESPN noted.

This game featured the only two active former multiple-time WNBA MVPs in Parker and former Sky player Elena Delle Donne.

The Sky return home from a three-game road trip to play the Indiana Fever for what will be the Sky's Championship Ring and Banner Night. Tipoff at Wintrust Arena is at 7 p.m. CT; the game will be aired on CW-26 and the Indiana Fever Facebook page. The championship ring ceremony is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. CT.

—The Chicago Red Stars, sparked by the return of Mallory Pugh, took down the Orlando Pride 4-2 on May 22.

Pugh scored twice; Sarah Griffith and Bianca St-Georges also scored goals for the Red Stars.

The Red Stars pressured the Pride with 55 percent possession, 14 total shots with nine on target (to five total and three on target for the Pride) and 10 shots inside the box (to Orlando's four).

Chicago's next game will be against the Portland Thorns on Saturday, May 28, at 7 p.m. CT at SeatGeek Stadium.

—The Chicago Cubs (16-24) beat the Arizona Diamondbacks (21-22) 5-4 at Wrigley Field on May 22.

The Cubs were on the cusp of dropping their fifth straight game, which would have tied their longest losing streak of the season. But then came Patrick Wisdom and Frank Schwindel, who ended that skid by blasting back-to-back home runs to open the eighth inning.

The North Siders start a four-game series at the Cincinnati Reds starting Monday, May 23, before concluding the Crosstown Classic series at the Chicago White Sox on May 28-29.

—In NYC, the Chicago White Sox (21-20) swept a doubleheader from the New York Yankees (29-12), 3-1 and 5-0.

According to The Chicago Tribune, White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech retired the first 17 batters in the second game. Rob Brantly broke up the perfect game with a two-out double in the sixth.

Also in the latter game, the Sox scored five with two outs in the eighth on RBI hits by Andrew Vaughn and Reese McGuire and a three-run home run by shortstop Tim Anderson—his third hit of the game.

The White Sox will be home for their next several games. They will host the Boston Red Sox on May 24-26 before taking on the Chicago Cubs in the Crosstown Classic on May 28-29.
