CHICAGO -- Jeff Samardzija was at home pitching on the South Side. Samardzija threw a complete game, two-hit shutout and Julio Borbon hit a two-run home run and the Chicago Cubs beat the Chicago White Sox 7-0 on Monday. Samardzija (3-6) pitched the Cubs first complete game shutout since Randy Wells shut out the Giants on Aug. 29, 2011. The last time the Cubs shut out an opponent as a team came against the Rockies on Aug. 26, 2012. The first White Sox hit came from Conor Gillaspie in the third inning. Samardzija then got Jeff Keppinger to hit into a double play as he faced the minimum through four innings. He struck out Alejandro De Aza to end the sixth. He then retired 12 straight before giving up a walk to Tyler Flowers in the ninth inning. He bounced back by striking out De Aza, then after a single to Alexei Ramirez, he got Alex Rios to pop out to end the game. The once anticipated interleague series in Chicago lost some of its lustre with the fans as the Cubs entered the game in last place in the NL Central and the White Sox are struggling to play .500. The announced attendance was 30,631 at U.S. Cellular Field. Samardzija who grew up in Northwest Indiana, enjoys pitching against the White Sox. "I love this place," Samardzija said. "I loved coming here to watch games here as a kid. I loved watching these guys play for a long time. "Ive always been a fan, so to come here and to have my whole family here, 30 minutes from home from my backyard, its fun. I love being here. I love the atmosphere here. I love these games against the White Sox, they are always fun, unfortunately they cut them down to four. This is what baseball is all about, these rivalry games," "You got the smell of the steel mills in the background, its not the most beautiful scent in the world, but it smells like home." Anthony Rizzo doubled and hit a two-run triple in his first Crosstown Classic and Alfonso Soriano added three hits as the Cubs won two in a row after losing six straight. Cubs manager Dale Sveum was impressed by how Samardzija featured his fastball. "Sometimes he reverts back to probably thinking a little too much instead of just knowing what he is. He is a big-time power guy," Sveum said. "You guys saw his split-finger pitch tonight, it is pretty much a non-hittable pitch when he is committed it and throwing it like that. Not that hes not a pitcher, but sometimes he wants to be this pitcher that is pitching like a Greg Maddux. He is not that kind of a pitcher." It was Samardzijas first career shutout. "I am going out with the mindset to pitch deep in every game. If you want to be one of the guys the team turns to in a big situation, thats the number one thing, pitch deep into games and give your offence a chance to win the game. We saw what happened tonight." White Sox starter Jose Quintana (3-2) allowed four runs and four hits. He struck out five and allowed three walks. The White Sox lost for the second time in seven games. With one out in the first inning, Quintana walked Starlin Castro then struck out Rizzo as Castro was attempting to steal second. Flowers was unable to throw to second because Ramirez forgot to cover second base. Soriano followed with a single off the left field wall to score Castro. "Again, I dont know if it was the pitcher who made us flat, but there was enough of a lack of focus that needs to be there," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. In the fifth inning, Borbon hit a two-run shot to right on the first pitch. It was his first homer and the first RBIs of the season. Rizzo led off the sixth with a double and scored on Scott Hairstons sacrifice fly to make it 4-0. In the seventh, Rizzo hit a two-run triple off the centre field wall and scored on Sorianos single to extend the Cubs lead to 7-0. White Sox reliever Nate Jones allowed three runs and four hits in the seventh inning. "Right now he needs to fix it here," Ventura said. "Weve seen it. Its there. I dont know if its the lack of confidence or what. Stuff-wise, its not a velocity issue at all. Its going to be more location and the confidence of being able to continue to do that."

LONG POND, Pa. -- Pocono CEO Brandon Igdalsky took refuge from the rain inside a garage stall that was being used as the site of the drivers meeting.His message Sunday morning to Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and the rest of the field: I love you guys. But I dont want to see you tomorrow.Well, tough luck.Call it, Pocono Rainway.Rain washed out the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway and the 400-mile race will now run at 11 a.m. Monday. Martin Truex Jr. is on the pole and Kurt Busch tries to sweep Pocono in the tracks second Monday race of the season.The June Pocono race also was delayed a day. NASCAR said this was the first time a track had two rain-postponed races in the same season.This was NASCARs 10th postponed race since 2011. The 2012 rain-shortened race at Pocono was marred by lightning strikes that killed one fan and injured nine others.Mondays forecast seems cloudier than Kasey Kahnes chances to make the Chase. But NASCAR set the time an hour earlier than the green flag start on that June Monday to try to beat some of the rain and reach at least the halfway point for an official race.I feel bad for the fans more than anybody, Igdalsky said. We were going to have an unbelievable crowd here today.The track-drying Air Titans provided the only action at Pocono and, after morning rain had passed, there were clear skies at the scheduled 1:30 p.m. start. But about 90 minutes later, it started pouring at the track and the race was quickly called off.Kahne went on TV and bemoaned that he would have to delay a vacation to the Bahamas.Pocono had more pressing problems.While NASCAR tracks dont release attendance numbers, Igdalsky said Pocono was on pace for its biggest crowd in years. The tracks infield and camping areas were sold out, along with some of the higher-priced suites. And Monday races are a burden for everyone involved in NASCAR.A lot of our staff are volunteers and theyve got jobs tomorrow theyve got to get back to, he said. Theyve taken off Friday already. It definitely hits you in the purse sttrings.dddddddddddd. The possibility of two in one season, thats painful.Igdalsky said there was a Jeff Gordon bump in ticket sales when the retired four-time champion came back to drive for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. Igdalsky said it was hard to put an exact number on the number of additional tickets sold because of Gordons return because it coincided with the tracks usual final-weeks ticket sales push.For us, it was the perfect storm, Igdalsky said.Unfortunately for the track, the wrong kind hit Sunday.Kevin Harvicks 4-year-old son, Keelan, splashed around in a puddle. Some drivers took their dogs for a walk. Crew members stretched out on pit road and gazed at darkened clouds that hinted of the rain ahead.Even more Monday races rain loom at a track without lights such as Pocono in 2017 and beyond. NASCAR bumped start times at most tracks from the 1:30 p.m. window to around 3 p.m. or later next season, meaning one rain delay could lose a track for the day.Igdalsky lobbied NASCAR to keep his traditional and more fan-friendly start time.For us, 1 is a better time, he said. I understand the thought process behind it and Im going to support it.There are six races left until the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship driver field is set. Led by four-time winners Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, there are 11 slots seemingly set for race winners. Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson are the four winless drivers perilously holding on to the final five spots.Game notes Sunday would have been Justin Wilsons 38th birthday. The IndyCar driver was killed last August from injuries suffered in the race at Pocono. Igdalsky said the track was working with IndyCar for an appropriate tribute to the driver when the series returns on Aug. 21.IndyCar is back for the fourth straight season and Igdalsky refused to say if the series would return in 2017.Maybe, he said, laughing.
