Cubs Win First Half of Civil War

 The Cubs swept crosstown rivals the White Sox this weekend in what has come to be known as the Crosstown Classic. That is the name used by what was an early season exhibition charity game that was played in Wrigley Field one year and Comiskey Park the next year. While playing for the White Sox in 1988 Steve Lyons played all nine positions during the exhibition game. The Sox head out to L.A. for three games against the Dodgers and the Cubs have three home games against the Orioles this week before renewing the rivalry down at Comiskey next weekend.
