MLB Game Summary - Chicago White Sox at Chicago Cubs



(Tuesday, May 6th)

Final Score: Chicago White Sox 5, Chicago Cubs 1

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Gordon Beckham's eighth-inning home run was the difference on Tuesday, as the Chicago White Sox took down the crosstown-rival Cubs 5-1 at Wrigley Field.

Beckham went 4-for-5 at the dish with two runs scored in the third straight White Sox victory. His solo shot to left off Neil Ramirez (0-1) broke a 1-1 tie, and the visitors tacked on three more runs in the ninth to pull away.

"I got a better feel today," said Beckham. "It was bound to happen. I wasn't panicked, I've kind of been here before. I had a good game, happy to do it."

Moises Sierra, who was a late addition to the starting lineup after Adam Dunn was scratched with a bruised right calf, finished 4-for-4 while Jordan Danks drove in a pair for the Sox. Alexei Ramirez and Tyler Flowers had an RBI apiece.

Hector Noesi went five innings for the visitors, allowing a run on four hits with six strikeouts. Zach Putnam (1-0) was perfect in two innings of relief to earn the win.

Edwin Jackson started for the Cubs and went seven innings, allowing a run on six hits with a season-high nine strikeouts.

"I was able to come out today and make pitches when I needed to, especially with men on base," Jackson said. "Making pitches with men in scoring position is the difference between giving up runs and not giving up runs."

Leading 2-1, Ramirez started the top of the ninth with a walk and Sierra reached base on an infield single to third. Flowers plated Ramirez with his double to left and after Marcus Semien went down swinging, Danks cleared the bases with his double to the ivy in center.

Cubs' reliever Pedro Strop was charged with three runs on three hits over just one-third of an inning in the ninth before leaving with an apparent injury.

Earlier, Beckham came around to score the game's first run in the fourth inning. The Cubs got the run back in the fifth on Emilio Bonifacio's RBI single to right.
