Yankees Beaten By White Sox, Nearly No-Hit

derek-jeterThe Yankees got a good start from A.J. Burnett, but it was wasted as the Bombers were shutdown by Phil Humber, who took a no-hitter into the 7th, as the White Sox beat them 2-0 at home Monday night.

Alex Rodriguez was the player who eventually broke up the no-hit bid in the 7th with a single. Curtis Granderson and Eric Chavez were the only other two hitters to pick up hits.

Burnett started and even though he wasn’t at his best, he still managed to hold the White Sox to just one run over eight innings. Rafael Soriano came in for the 9th and was involved in some controversy when he didn’t even attempt to catch a pop-up hit just behind him. That runner eventually came around to score and the Yankees lost 2-0.

  1. The Pirate says:

    Soriano sign the pop-up, but his position was the best to catch the ball, the responsible was the rest of the infield players , Jeter, Rodriguez, Cano and Texeira, except Jeter was no effort from the others, so Soriano was not the only one that didn't even attempt to catch the pop-up. Jeter was playing at the grass area, this is a proof that his range to cover in the shortstop it's not as in the pass, NYY need to star thinking in his replacement.
