Chicago Sports Recap: 7/7/23

Chicago Cubs Chicago Cubs 3 – New York Yankees 0

Highlights:  At first glance, Jameson Taillon appeared to wear a blue T-shirt with a Cubs logo. Upon closer inspection, the large red “C” did not have “ubs” after it, instead there was “offee.” He had a caffeinated return to the Bronx. Taillon allowed one hit over eight innings to outpitch Carlos Rodón in the All-Star’s injury-delayed Yankees debut and lift the Chicago Cubs over New York 3-0 on Friday night for their first-ever victory in the Bronx. Taillon (3-6) struck out four, set his season high for innings and didn’t allow a runner past first base in his first victory since June 13. Read more at:  (AP)

Chicago White SoxSt. Louis Cardinals 7 – Chicago White Sox 8

Highlights:  All-Star Luis Robert Jr. tied the game with his 26th homer of the season, and the  Chicago White Sox rallied past St. Louis 8-7 on Friday night after Cardinals starter Jordan Montgomery left with a right hamstring injury. Nolan Arenado hit a pair of two-run homers for St. Louis, which took a 5-0 lead in the third and led 5-1 in the fifth when Montgomery departed abruptly. With a 2-1 count on Elvis Andrus, Montgomery tapped the back of his right leg with his glove. Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol and trainers went to the mound, and Montgomery walked slowly to the dugout. Read more at:  (AP)
