The Chicago Sky (14-5) defeated the Connecticut Sun (13-7) 91-83 on June 29 at Wintrust Arena, scoring their fourth consecutive win.

A scorching start helped Chicago. The Sky set a new WNBA shooting record in a half by making 83.3% of their shots in the first as they took a 55-33 lead. The previous high for a first or second half was 80%, shot by the Minnesota Lynx on Aug. 4, 2003.

Candace Parker led Chicago with 25 points (14 in the first quarter) and 11 rebounds.

The Sky is back in action Saturday, July 2, as the Phoenix Mercury make their second trip of the season to Wintrust Arena. The tipoff is slated for 12 p.m.; coverage of the game will air on ESPN.

—Chicago Fire FC (4-8-5, 17 points) earned a second consecutive home victory, defeating Eastern Conference leaders Philadelphia Union (7-2-8, 29 points) 1-0 at Soldier Field on June 29 as the club celebrated Pride Night.

Fire midfielder Federico Navarro scored his first goal of the season and goalkeeper Gaga Slonina earned his seventh clean sheet of 2022.

Chicago will travel across the country to face the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday, July 3, at PayPal Park. Beginning at 8 p.m. CT, the match will be televised on WGN-TV and CF97 Live, and transmitted locally in Spanish on TUDN 1200 AM.

—Also on June 29, the Chicago Cubs (29-46) defeated the Cincinnati Reds (26-48) 8-3 at Wrigley Field.

Defense helped win the game for Chicago, as Christopher Morel's throw to cut down Tommy Pham trying to score on a fly to center got the Cubs out of a bases-loaded jam, ESPN noted. Also, Wilson Contreras homered.

The two teams collide again on Thursday, July 30.

—The Chicago White Sox (35-39) fell to the Los Angeles Angels (37-41) 4-1 in Anaheim, California.

Chicago avoided its third shutout loss of the season when Luis Robert reached on shortstop Andrew Velazquez's throwing error and eventually scored on Ryan Tepera's wild pitch in the eighth, according to ESPN.

After a travel day, the White Sox's Lance Lynn will take the mound in San Francisco on Friday, July 1, as the South Siders open a weekend series against the Giants.
