Chicago baseball has a doubleheader today on Comcast SportsNet with both the Cubs and White Sox.

The Pittsburgh Pirates take a trip to Wrigley Field in the last series between the two teams this season at 7:05 p.m. 

In the six meetings at Wrigley Field, the series is a split. Charlie Morton (7-4, 3.35 ERA) and Jeff Samardzija (8-12, 4.42 ERA) will take the mound.

The Cubs continue their stretch against teams itching to make the playoffs. After the Atlanta Braves clinched the NL East last night at Wrigley, the Pirates are trying to secure a playoff spot of their own for the first time in 21 years. A Pirates victory and a Washington Nationals loss will lock up a Pittsburgh postseason appearance.

On the South Side, the Chicago White Sox host the Toronto Blue Jays at 7:10 p.m. in their makeup game from June 12.

Jose Quintana (8-6, 3.49 ERA) and J.A. Happ (4-6, 4.82) square off in a rematch after Quintana pitched a 7-0 shutout on Apr. 17. The White Sox have defeated the Blue Jays six out of the last nine contests.

With only seven games left, the Sox and Blue Jay teams are on pace to finish last in their division after coming into the year with high expectations.
