The Cubs stretched their winning streak to four games behind a 13-hit attack that featured four home runs. Christopher Morel went back-to-back with Swanson to punctuate a three-run second inning
Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks (4-4) yielded three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four in 6 1/3 innings. He retired the first 12 batters he faced before Eloy Jimenez doubled leading off the fifth inning, by which point the visitors led 5-0
Jimenez scored on Andrew Vaughn's RBI groundout two batters later, but the White Sox couldn't muster much else en route to their fourth straight loss and sixth defeat in seven games
Trailing 7-1 in the seventh, the White Sox loaded the bases with no outs but left the inning wanting more after scoring just two runs. Cubs right fielder Seiya Suzuki leapt over the wall to rob Yoan Moncada of a grand slam. The White Sox settled for Moncada's RBI sacrifice fly and Vaughn's run-scoring infield hit that followed
Morel and Yan Gomes both had two hits for the Cubs. Hoerner added two stolen bases as the Cubs collected five steals in as many attempts against White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal. A would-be caught stealing in the top of the seventh was overturned on replay review, leaving Ian Happ safe at second base
White Sox starter Michael Kopech (4-9) allowed five runs, four earned, and nine hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out five while surrendering three homers
Kopech has served up at least one long ball in five consecutive starts.
