Over the course of the long baseball season, in any given series even a good team can look over-matched. The White Sox do not look like a good team by any measure right now, and they certainly looked over-matched this weekend against the champion Astros. Houston completed a three-game sweep on Sunday with a 7-1 win. The Astros outscored Chicago 27-2 in the series. On the bright side, the White Sox avoided becoming the first team since 1929 to allow double-digit runs in five straight games. The Astros will now return home for a big series against the Los Angeles Angels.

Cubs star Kris Bryant left Sunday's game against the Rockies after getting hit in the head by a pitch from righty German Marquez in the top of the first inning. Bryant looked woozy as he was helped off the field by the training staff. An ensuing argument, presumably about the intent of the pitch, got Cubs hitting coaches Chili Davis and Andy Haines ejected from the game. The Cubs followed the HBP with four hits, scoring three times, all with two outs.
