Cubs mount ferocious rally to stun White Sox

cubs, white sox

Ian Happ had three hits, including a two-run, go-ahead double in the bottom of the eighth, as the host Chicago Cubs rallied from an early 5-0 deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 7-6 on Tuesday night.

The White Sox have now lost 12 games in a row.

Happ went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs and two RBIs, while Christopher Morel and Patrick Wisdom both homered for the Cubs.

Luke Little (2-1) picked up the win with a 1-2-3 eighth and Hector Neris earned his eighth save with a scoreless ninth, picking off Duke Ellis, the tying run, at second in the process.

Luis Robert Jr. homered and finished with two hits and two runs while Lenyn Sosa went 2-for-3 with a two-run shot for the White Sox, who have matched the third-longest losing streak in franchise history.

The White Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the fourth inning against Cubs starter Shota Imanaga, taking advantage of a Morel error to score four unearned runs.

Andrew Vaughn and Robert led off the frame with back-to-back singles before Vaughn scored when Morel mishandled Paul DeJong’s grounder. One out later, Korey Lee smacked a two-run double to make it 3-0.

With two outs, Sosa capped the rally with his two-run blast.

Imanaga lasted 4 1/3 innings, giving up the five runs (one earned) on seven hits. He struck out six without walking anyone.

Following a 42-minute rain delay, the Cubs cut their deficit to 5-1 in the fifth against White Sox starter Chris Flexen. Happ opened the inning with a double and later scored on a double by Dansby Swanson.

The Cubs tied it at 5-all in the sixth against relievers Justin Anderson and Tanner Banks thanks to two-run shots from Morel and Wisdom. Morel went deep off Anderson, while Wisdom got the best of Banks.

Robert, playing for the first time since April 5 because of a right hip flexor strain, launched a ball 448 feet in the seventh to put the White Sox up 6-5.

An inning later, Happ plated Cody Bellinger and Morel with his double, which came against Jordan Leasure (0-1).

Flexen yielded one run and three hits in five innings. He didn’t issue a walk and struck out four.
