Can the White Sox sweep the Cubs? Don't count on it. The Cubbies have now lost five in a row on the road but we like their chances to break out of their slump tonight and avoid the sweep at the hands of their cross-town rivals. The Cubs have been good this year because they have avoiding long losing streaks. They will be focused here as they are 10-2 this season off consecutive losses. The White Sox certainly have the pitching advantage on paper, but the fact remains that Buehrle has a losing record and the Cubs own a 16-8 record vs. LHP, scoring 6.5 runs per game against them on average. Meanwhile the Sox average just 4.0 runs per game vs. southpaws. It's not often you're going to get the Cubs as a dog like this. We'll take that value.
