June 27 - 29, 2008: Cubs @ White Sox

June 27 - 29, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

June 27: Cubs 3 - White Sox 10
June 28: Cubs 5 - White Sox 6
June 29: Cubs 1 - White Sox 5

Sweep revenge.

For a number of years, the last Crosstown Classic series was a benchmark for how the teams would do the rest of the year. It always seemed that whoever won that final series would do well the rest of the year. Whoever lost that series would start their downward spiral. I don't really wish the Cubs any ill will, but they might want to watch their step in the upcoming weeks.

The good:
A clean sweep!

Jermaine Dye continues to be on fire.

The bad:
Crede's error in Game 3.

Jenks was a little shaky in Game 3.

The ugly:
Javier Vazquez gave up five runs in 4.1 innings in Game 2.

DeWayne Wise was a rare 0 for 4 in Game 1.

This could vault the Sox into a great July. Maybe this is exactly the series that the Sox needed to lift them out of their on again off again funk. Stranger things have happened.
