Guaranteed Rate Field (Comisky Park)
Cubs vs White Sox 7/6/19
Crosstown Classic of Cubs visiting the White Sox. Players know it’s a big deal and boy what a game with Lester vs Giolito pitching. It was a close and tidy game until the 5th when Cubs put 5 more runs up to lead 6-1. White Sox got 2 runs back with a home run in the bottom of the 8th, and had a really good chance to score more in the bottom of the 9th but came up short. Kimbrel got his 2nd save of the season with them.
Final of 6-3 with Cubs on top this round.
I didn’t get to the game until maybe the 4th inning due to taking a detour and going to the Field of Dreams. It’s literally in the middle of nowhere and boy I was so glad I went. I could have spent even more time but had to go. I did get to throw and hit on the field itself! I did watch the movie the precious day before going to the Twins game, so it was very fresh on my mind. When I did manage to get to the baseball game I was a bit confused on parking, directed to a certain lot, never found a person to scan my parking entry ticket and parked literally right next to the gate. I was shocked! The game itself of the rivalry between the 2 teams and how they only play against each other twice a year. It was also fun to people watch with the fans. The Left Fielder for the White Sox was jawing with the fans in the stands. Gotta love rivalries.
