- The Sox's Chris Sale is now at triple digits, as in 11-2
Even as our coverage
of Pitchfork continues, we fans of work and pleasure
have christened this Sports & Rec Week on the Bleader. Sunday got things off to an auspicious start baseballwise, with afternoon wins for both the Cubs (3-1 over the Diamondbacks
) and Sox (2-1 over the Royals
, behind All-Star pitcher Chris Sale). The Cubs' victory capped off a rare sweep, just their second this season, and gave them four straight—they've
won 12 of their last 16 games and, for now
, no longer have the worst record in baseball. The Sox, meanwhile, are at ten games over .500 and continue to cling to first place in the AL Central, with a four-game stretch in Boston up next and the Tigers hoping to pounce in the aftermath.
But what's that you say? You don't give a shit about baseball?
There's also the Olympics coming up, the Reader softball team's impending face-off with current media-league leader Chicago Now, the—who knows? So far we've got a hard-hitting lineup of Ted Cox, Tal Rosenberg, Michael Miner, and Kevin Warwick.
