The Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Cubs are headed in completely opposite directions so when the South Siders destroyed the North Siders in the three game crosstown series over the weekend tensions got high.
Fans of the two Windy City teams already aren’t very fond of one another, but with the White Sox drubbing the fuzzy Cubbies by a score of 13 to 1 on Sunday, things escalated to a new level of animosity and resulted in a wild brawl in the stands.
The rubber match of the series, the White Sox won game one 17-13 and the Cubs won game two 7-0, got ugly when the Sox scored a whopping 7 runs in the fifth inning, both on the field as well as in the bleachers.
Naturally, the brawl was captured for posterity by numerous fans, at numerous angles, during the game with their phone cameras.
