Yankees Get Swept By White Sox

Chris Sale struck out 13 in 7 2-3 stellar innings to get his 15th victory, Alex Rios hit a go-ahead homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 2-1 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep in the meeting of division leaders.

Sale (15-4) outpitched New York’s Phil Hughes, allowing one walk and three hits, including Derek Jeter’s solo homer in the sixth — the Yankee star’s third homer in as many nights. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.

New York’s loss and Tampa Bay’s victory over Kansas City reduced the Yankees’ lead in the AL East to three games, their smallest since before play on June 26.

The win gave the White Sox their first three-game sweep of the Yankees at home since 1991, the year U.S. Cellular Field (then known as new Comiskey Park) opened.
