Yankees finish strong homestand with 9-1 win over White Sox

White Sox vs. Yankees
FINAL: Yankees 9, White Sox 1
WIN: Masahiro Tanaka (2-1, 6.00 ERA)
LOSS: Dylan Covey (0-1, 7.84 ERA)

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.

Tanaka went seven innings, giving up one run on six hits while striking out six. Bryan Mitchell pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and Tommy Layne retired two batters.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees are off tomorrow, but they’ll play a three-game series in Pittsburgh as they take on the struggling Pirates. CC Sabathia will start for the Yankees and Tyler Glasnow will start for the Pirates. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    Judges solo homer was a thing of beauty, 448' deep into the left field bleachers. This kid is going to be so much fun to watch.

    Tanaka looked great last night, now all of the starters are giving us good games. Let's hope it continues.

    I was at the game, great seats and a perfect view of Judge's home run, to me one of the longest I'd ever seen. And it was crazy high and long. Truly majestic. The stadium was electric. What a great game to be at and with my lovely daughter.

    long home runs are fun-but what I really like is guys going the other way much more-I think we have KLONG out of our system-don't even know the new batting coach's name but I see an impact with Headly, Austin Judge and even ellbury and Bird which is not typical for lefties in Yankee stadium
