In WNBA action, Courtney Vandersloot and Emma Meesseman each scored 20 points to lead the Chicago Sky (9-4) to an 88-86 win over the New York Liberty (5-9) in the Big Apple on June 12. It was the Sky's fifth win in six games.

Stefanie Dolson played her second game against her former team after winning the 2021 WNBA championship with the Sky last year. New York's Sabrina Ionescu recorded her second career triple-double with 27 points, 12 assists and 13 rebounds.

The Sky return home to face the Atlanta Dream (7-6) on Friday, June 17. The tipoff is at Wintrust Arena is at 7 p.m. CT; coverage of the game can be found on Facebook, the Marquee Sports Network and Bally Sports South.

—On June 12, the Chicago Red Stars took down the Orlando Pride 1-0, with Mallory Pugh scoring the team's lone goal.

In the ninth minute, Pugh took advantage of a quick pass from Bianca St-Georges near the Pride's box and buried an early goal into the back of the net.

Next, Chicago will take on the Kansas City Current on Saturday, June 18, at 7:30 p.m. CT at Children's Mercy Park.

—Not too long, the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 21-0. On June 12, the New York Yankees almost dealt Chicago a loss by the same margin.

At Yankee Stadium, New York (44-16) thrashed Chicago (23-36) 18-4 as the Yankees' Matt Carpenter homered twice and tied his career high with seven RBI, ESPN noted. Giancarlo Stanton and Isiah Kiner-Falefa had three RBI each as the Yankees sprayed a season-high 17 hits and scored their most runs since beating Toronto 20-6 on Sept. 15, 2020.

Also, the Cubs' Seiya Suzuki, sidelined since May 26 with a sprained left ring finger, still has swelling and won't participate in baseball activities for at least five days.

On Monday, June 13, the Cubs will start a series against San Diego and former North Sider Yu Darvish.

—The Chicago White Sox (27-31) also came up short June 12, falling to the Texas Rangers (28-31) 8-6 in 12 innings at Guaranteed Rate Field.

According to ESPN, embattled manager Tony La Russa and the White Sox have lost four of five. This one began with right-hander Michael Kopech leaving with right knee discomfort after 13 pitches and ended with an unusual double play in the 12th. Jonah Heim hit a two-run single in the 12th inning and the Rangers turned a double play on a ball hit to the warning track.

The South Siders will now start a homestand against the Detroit Tigers.
