Crosstown Series 2005, Round Three

The final: White Sox: 3, Cubs: 4

2005 Series (thus far): White Sox: 2, Cubs: 1

Mark Prior threw 126 pitches for a complete game as he stopped a Sox sweep at Wrigley Field under ideal baseball viewing conditions. Prior struck out seven and walked one, improving his record to 4-1 and the club's record to 19-22. The Cubs runs consisted of a solo shot by Henry Blanco a three-run shot by Jason DuBois.

The Sox started newcomer Brandon McCarthy (Yet Another Young Tall Pitcher) in place of El Duque. McCarthy was impressive in his first Major League start, fanning six, walking one, and giving up two runs.

In other news, former Cub Matt Clement pitched a complete game for the Red Sox against the Braves, throwing 110 pitches and striking out seven. His record improves to 5-0, pitching the first complete game for the club this year.

The Astros were swept by the Rangers, extending their losing streak to five games. (They face the Cubs at Wrigley tomorrow.) After two close wins, the Cardinals lost to the Royals, slightly shrinking the buffer between them and the rest of the NL Central, who all remain below .500.

Desperate statistic posted on WGN: Prior is 11-0 in starts after consecutive losses.
