MESA, Ariz. — The South Side met the North Side out west on Monday. It was Cubs vs. White Sox in a February Cactus League game at Sloan Park. They played to a 4-4 tie.

Ah, a spring training tie, when there’s no victorious handshake line after the game, only friendly waves from one manager to the other from their respective dugouts.

Here is what Monday looked like on a cool, overcast afternoon in the desert. Photos by Morry Gash of the Associated Press.
