José Abreu took advantage of an impressive 13-1 White Sox victory over the Cubs to become only the third player in the series to have six seasons of at least 100 RBI.
Abreu, 34, produced his 100th point of the season in the 5th round, when he hit a two-round double that pushed Brian Goodwin and Cesar Hernandez to the plate.
Only Paul Konerko (6) and Frank Thomas (10) achieved such a feat in the White Sox uniform. Abreu also became the first White Sox player since 2006 to reach the 100PP plateau in 125 games or less. Jermaine Dye had been the last.
Luis Robert did very well in the White Sox victory with two hits, three races scored and three RBIs. He beat home runs in the 1st and 6th rounds.
The Sox hit the Cubs in the 5th inning and scored seven runs. Eloy Jimenez was a big player in this big round for the White Sox with a three-round homerun.
Yasmani Grandal and Goodwin also hit long balls in the game for the White Sox. For the Cubs, Frank Schwindel scored the only point thanks to a homerun in the 4th round.
The victory went to the record of Dylan Cease who was fantastic on the mound. He used 11 strokes in the mitten and limited the Cubs to four hits and a single run.
Joey Wendle had fun against the Orioles pitcher on Sunday in a 12-8 win for the Rays. He finished the match with no less than six RBI.

Jordan Luplow and Austin Meadows also hit home runs in the Rays game.
For the Orioles, Ryan Mountcastle hit four hits and scored three runs.
Cedric Mullins hit a two-run homer in the 8th inning, but the Orioles could not add more.
The Rays thus sign a 7th victory in a row and sweep the series against the Orioles, dead last in the east of the American.
Oscar Mercado gave his team the lead after an eighth inning hurdle, and the Cleveland Indians came from behind to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 on Sunday.
The Indians were 4-0 behind and had not had a hit at the expense of rookie Tanner Houck before José Ramirez hit a home run after a sixth inning.
The Red Sox led 5-4 in the eighth inning when Austin Hedges hit an equalizer against Austin Davis (0-2).
Mercado then slammed a single and Yu Chang called with a double along the left field line. Mercado appeared on cue near the post, and steered it past the goalie.
Munoz was on his way to the left of the infield and Mercado contacted him by walking around the other pillow. Mercado also touched Davis, who had moved to cover the third goal.
Myles Straw hit a single that pushed Chang to the plate to give his team an insurance point.
The Red Sox are still number two among the American drafts, but have gone to eight games from the Tampa Bay Rays and first step in the Eastern Division.
Rafael Devers threw two long solo balls for the Bostonians. It was his third game of two home races this season and a ninth in his career.
Bryan Shaw (6-6) took care of the eighth set and Emmanuel Clase was perfect in the ninth to collect a 19th save this season. He prevented the Red Sox from signing a first game in Cleveland since 2013.
Houck had control until he gave Ramirez a long ball. He conceded three points and four trips.
Bobby Dalbec hit a solo homerun for the Red Sox. JD Martinez added a one-round double and Jarren Duran produced a run for a ride when the pillows were all occupied.
Tony Kemp broke the deadlock with a two-run homerun over Chad Green at eighth and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 3-1.
On Saturday, Athletics ended a six-game losing streak by winning 3-2 over the Yankees, who had won their last 13 games.
The Yankees have lost back-to-back games for the first time since July 23.
Kemp was called into the match as the designated hitter in the seventh and hit his fifth homer for the season. Three of them came against the Yankees.
“Nobody gives up on this team,” said Kemp. We will continue to fight for a place in the playoffs. “
Green (7-6) allowed his 11th long ball in the campaign.
“I saw a good shot and I shot as best I could,” Kemp said. I think I was as surprised as all the fans in the stands. “
Deolis Guerra (2-1) closed out the Yankees in eighth. Andrew Chafin withdrew the last three hits from the New York squad to earn his second save of the season.
Athletics opened the scoring in the fourth with a race produced by Mark Canha on a forced withdrawal. Initially, a double play ended the round, but the decision was reversed after a video recording. This is an unearned point due to a mistake by third baseman Gio Urshela. He made another mistake during the match.
The Yankees equalized in the seventh, helped by shaky defensive play from Athletics.
While Anthony Rizzo was at home with two outs, wide receiver Yan Gomes dropped a ball away to extend the set.
Rizzo then sent a ground ball to third base that went through Matt Champan’s legs so that Gary Sanchez could score the second and make the match equal.
