After their eight-game win streak was snapped on Tuesday night, the Yankees returned with hopes of ending their home stand off on the right foot. With four home runs and a dominant performance by Masahiro Tanaka, the team was able to improve their home record to 8-1 in a 9-1 win over the Chicago White Sox at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees scored in the top of the first on a two-run home run by Chase Headley. In the second, Austin Romine hit a RBI single and Ronald Torreyes grounded into a force out. In the fifth, Starlin Castro hit a three-run homer which was soon followed by a solo-shot for Aaron Judge. The Yankees added one more run in the eighth on a pinch-hit home run for Aaron Hicks.
