The Cubs beat the White Sox 7-2 despite striking out 17 times. It's the most strikeouts in a win for them since 2011. Willson Contreras was the offensive hero again as he had three hits and 4 RBI's including a 3 run HR in the first inning. John Lackey hit four batters, including three in one inning, but didn't give up much else. The bullpen did the rest as the Cubs moved back into a virtual tie for first place.
