White Sox to make up rainout with Cubs on July 8

SEATTLE -- The May 28 game between the Cubs and White Sox, which was postponed because of rain, has been rescheduled for Monday, July 8 at 7:10 p.m. CT at U.S. Cellular Field.

This new date breaks up a nine-game, three-city road trip for the White Sox going into the All-Star break, with three games at the Rays preceding the Monday makeup, followed by three in Detroit and three Interleague games in Philadelphia. The three games at Comerica Park mark the first contests between the Tigers and White Sox this season and the first three of 19 moving forward.

Game tickets and parking coupons from the postponed contest will only be honored at the July 8 makeup game. That game with the Cubs will be broadcast by Comcast SportsNet Chicago and WSCR 670 AM and in Spanish on ESPN Deportes 97.5 FM.

Tickets remain for the game and are available at whitesox.com, orgullosox.com, the U.S. Cellular Field ticket office and through Ticketmaster. The Cubs take a 3-0 series lead into this makeup, with their trio of victories starting this current seven-game losing streak for the White Sox.
