Cubs head coach Matt Luiz said that his baseball players had their heads hanging after four innings. They were down three runs to the White Sox and a loss seemed inevitable. But with some strong hitting in the final two innings, the Cubs scored eight runs to pull off a 9-6 come-from-behind victory over the White Sox to win the Cal Ripken Majors 11-12 championship at Salas Park in Lodi on Monday.
