For the first time since August 8th, the Yankees were able to scratch out more than four runs, those five runs sending them to a 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees scored in the bottom of the second, down by 1-0 on a double play ball hit by Chase Headley; Mark Teixeira scored on the play. In the bottom of the fourth, Martin Prado, who was last night’s walk-off hero, put the Yankees ahead on a two-run double, scoring both Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. The Yankees later put two more runs on the board in the sixth on a Carlos Beltan home run and a SAC fly by Stephen Drew.
Hiroki Kuroda started the game for the Yankees, going six innings while giving up two runs on five hits while striking out six. Shawn Kelley gave up a run while retiring two batters, Dellin Betances retired a batter, Adam Warren pitched a scoreless eighth and David Robertson notched his 34th save of the season, pitching a scoreless ninth.
