⚾️MLB: With their 7–5 win in extra innings, the White Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles yesterday. The game was tied at two apiece until Adam Engel smashed his second home run of the game to give the Sox a three-run lead. Bet that felt good

  • On the North Side, the Cubs split their two games with the St. Louis Cardinals, winning 10–5 on Friday and losing 6–0 on Saturday (yesterday’s game was postponed due to weather). Another hot-and-cold weekend in the books for Wrigleyville. 
  • Looking towards the future, the Sox and Cubbies both selected studs in the first round of the 2021 MLB Draft last night. Keep up-to-date on all the picks here.

⚽️Red Stars: The Red Stars walked away with a 2–1 win over the Houston Dash last night without scoring a single goal: the Dash’s two own-goals brought Chicago the victory. But hey, winning is winning, amirite

🏀Sky: The Sky lost a tight game to the Washington Mystics in overtime on Saturday, falling 89–85 in their final matchup before the Olympic break. The highlights? Stefanie Dolson’s team-leading 20 points and Candace Parker’s double-double featuring 17 points and 13 rebounds. Count it.
