CHICAGO — One could say that it was raining homers on the South Side in the early innings of Friday's matchup between the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox. More specifically, one could say that it was raining Cubs homers, as the North Siders slugged three dingers in the first four innings at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Javier Baez joined teammates Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras, who walloped a solo shot and a three-run blast, respectively, earlier in the contest, by going yard to lead off the top of the fourth. Barreling a 428-foot no-doubter out to left-center, Baez collected his eighth home run and 23rd RBI via the solo moonshot, which put the Cubs ahead 5-0.
