Wind helps North Siders blow out crosstown rivals
CHICAGO – The Cubs felt right at home with the wind blowing out Monday at U.S. Cellular Field.
Helped by gusts of up to 41 mph out to left field, the Cubs belted a season-high five home runs, giving starting pitcher Matt Garza more than enough run support in a 12-3 victory in the opening game of their three-game interleague series with the crosstown White Sox.
Their 12 runs scored and 15 hits were season-highs.
