Chicago Cubs 6 – Cincinnati Reds 2
Highlights: Jake Arrieta pitched one-hit ball for seven innings without allowing a stolen base on Sunday, and Ian Happ homered twice in the ballpark where he played as a college star, leading Chicago to a 6-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Arrieta was back in form, allowing only Joey Votto‘s first-inning single and a pair of walks, the Reds were never in position to try to steal. Votto singled home a pair of runs in the eighth off Koji Uehara. Anthony Rizzo had a solo homer, and Javier Baez doubled home a run as the Cubs prevented a three-game sweep.
Chicago White Sox 6 – Texas Rangers 5
Highlights: Reliever Jose Leclerc (1-2) gave up a two-run home run with two outs in the eighth to Chicago’s Yolmer Sanchez and the White Sox beat the Rangers 6-5 on Sunday. The White Sox committed a season-high four errors, including two on the same play that allowed a run to score. The Sox also nearly let the Rangers off the hook after taking the lead, loading the bases in the ninth before David Robertson (4-2) struck out Carlos Gomez to end the game. Melky Cabrera homered for Chicago, hitting his ninth in the first, and Mike Napoli hit his 16th for Texas. White Sox starter Jose Quintana had his shortest outing since May 30, giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out five.
