May continues to be a drag for the Chicago Cubs.
They limp into Monday’s day off and an upcoming nine-game homestand looking for momentum before their record — 20-26 after Sunday’s 2-1 loss in Philadelphia — puts them in catch-up mode the rest of the summer.
The White Sox, meanwhile, finished their first winning homestand of the season (6-3) on the strength of starting pitching. After Sunday’s 5-2 victory in the series finale against the Kansas City Royals, Sox starters have a 2.06 ERA — allowing nine earned runs in 39⅓ innings — over the last six games.
Every Monday throughout the season, Tribune baseball writers will provide an update on what happened — and what’s ahead for the Cubs and Sox.
