Schwarber homers as Cubs beat White Sox 6-1

CHICAGO (AP) Moments after Kanye West left the mound, Kyle Schwarber and the Chicago Cubs put on their own show.

Schwarber homered and drove in two runs, and the Cubs beat the crosstown White Sox 6-1 on Sunday to lower their magic number for clinching the NL Central title to five.

Ben Zobrist had three hits and Kyle Hendricks dazzled again as the Cubs took the rubber game of the weekend series. They also stayed 2 1/2 games ahead of second-place Milwaukee, which cruised to a 13-6 victory at Pittsburgh.
