White Sox Hammer Yankees 14-7
The Chicago White Sox erupted for 19 hits in a 14-7 drubbing of the Yankees on Friday night.
A.J. Pierzynski had three hits including two of Chicago’s four home runs, while Alexi Ramirez added a two-run shot, part of his four hit, three RBI night.
Curtis Granderson got the Yankees off to a good start with a two-run blast, and Andruw Jones doubled in two runs for 4-0 nothing first inning lead.
But Adam Warren’s big league debut didn’t go as planned, surrendering six runs on eight hits over 2.1 innings.
After Jason Nix tied the game 6-6 with a two-RBI double in the fourth, the Sox took the lead right back from Pierzynski’s second homer off of David Phelps (1-3) in the fifth inning.
Jose Quintana (3-1) was the beneficiary of Chicago’s offensive outpouring, picking up the win after yielding six runs on eight hits through six innings.
