Brian McCann wasn’t even in the starting lineup today, but when he pinch-hit in the 10th inning, he was able to give the Yankees a 7-4 win over Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees were able to score four runs off Sale in the sixth inning on a Mark Teixeira RBI double, a hit by pitch by Zelous Wheeler and a two-run single by Ichiro Suzuki. Brian McCann replaced Francisco Cervelli in the 10th, sending a pitch over the right field wall to secure the sweep for the Yankees.
Chris Capuano opposed Sale and he pitched six innings while giving up three runs on six hits and striking out five. Esmil Rogers retired two batters, Rich Hill retired a batter, Adam Warren pitched a scoreless eighth, David Robertson gave up a run on a hit in the ninth and David Huff pitched a scoreless 10th, earning his fourth win of the season.
— The Yankees and the Kansas City Royals will play a one game series to make up the rained out game from earlier this season. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on My9.
