5/27 Cubs 7, White Sox 0
Jeff Samardzija threw a career-best two-hitter Monday night to lead the Cubs to a 7-0 victory over the White Sox Monday night. Julio Borbon smacked his first home run and Anthony Rizzo hit a double, a triple and drove in two runs to back the right-hander, who collected his second complete game and first career shutout.
Samardzija struck out eight. He gave up a leadoff single to Conor Gillaspie in the third, and got Jeff Keppinger to ground into a double play. Alexei Ramirez also singled with two outs in the ninth.
This was the first of four Interleague games to be played between the intracity rivals in a new format in which the Cubs and White Sox will play two games at U.S. Cellular, then two at Wrigley Field.
