Cubs beat Sox in game 2, four more games to go

Jim Edmonds hit two home runs as part of a nine-run fourth inning as the Chicago Cubs defeated the White Sox, 11-7, in the second of a three-game interleague series at Wrigley Field. After that we have three more games at Comiskey.. er... I mean U.S. Cellular... er... I mean US Comiskular Park! (Just playing, I like to call it that).

The Cubs have now won 13 straight games at Wrigley. We'll see if they have as much luck on US Comiskular turf... The Cubs will start Ryan Dempster (8-2) in the series finale on Sunday, while the White Sox will counter with Javier Vazquez (7-5). The Cubs have won five straight and eight of their last nine encounters with the White Sox, including six of seven tilts held in 2007. The Cubs are 82-83 all-time in interleague play and improved to 31-8 at Wrigley this season. The Cubs placed starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a minor strain in his right shoulder and recalled Patterson from Triple-A Iowa. Edmonds became only the third Cubs player in franchise history to hit two homers in an inning.

Watching game three now, personally I'd like to see Sox win third so everyone stays solidly in first for another week.
