A look at what’s happening around the majors today:


The White Sox open a three-game home series against the crosstown rival Cubs three weeks after sweeping a set at Wrigley Field. The AL Central-leading White Sox haven’t won a season series against the Cubs since going 3-1 in 2014 and haven’t swept the Windy City showdown since interleague play was introduced in 1997.

Left-hander Dallas Keuchel (8-7, 4.71) is set to face Cubs righty Keegan Thompson (3-3, 2.42).


Toting the best record in the majors, Brandon Crawford and the San Francisco Giants visit Atlanta for the opener of a three-game series between National League division leaders. Kevin Gausman (12-5, 2.47 ERA) is expected to come off the COVID-19 injured list to start for the Giants against Max Fried (11-7, 3.49) in a fine pitching matchup.

Freddie Freeman and the Braves should be well-rested, too, coming off a rare set of consecutive days off built into their schedule.

San Francisco is about to get tested with a challenging stretch. The team plays its next 10 games against the Braves, the NL Central-leading Brewers and the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, who have the second-best record in the big leagues and aren’t far behind the Giants in the NL West.


Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has been turning up the heat on his quest for a first Cy Young Award and is set to make his latest pitch against the A’s.

Cole (12-6, 2.92) has allowed a run over 11 2/3 innings in two starts since returning from a bout with mild COVID-19 symptoms, striking out 15 and walking two.


Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins will miss the rest of the season with an abdominal tear that requires surgery.

The 28-year-old leads the Phillies with 27 homers and 71 RBIs, and the news is a major blow to the team’s playoff hopes. Philadelphia entered Thursday trailing first-place Atlanta by five games in the NL East.

Hoskins had been playing through an abdominal injury all season, but he aggravated it when he dove awkwardly for a ball at Washington on Aug. 5. His final at-bat this season was a game-tying homer in the eighth inning against the Rays on Wednesday night.
