White Sox take series from Yankees with 5-2 victory behind Tim Anderson's grand slam

Including an nearly identical line in his last outing against Tampa Bay in September, Sabathia is the first major leaguer to throw at least five scoreless innings with one-or-fewer hits and no walks in consecutive starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Chicago White Sox (4-8, fourth in the AL Central) vs.

Tanaka gave up five runs on seven hits in four-plus innings, striking out six and walking three as the Yankees lost for the fifth time in six games and dropped to 6-9.

NY is 3-6 at home against the Orioles, Tigers and White Sox - all projected also-rans who lost at least 98 games previous year. "We've noticed that", right fielder Aaron Judge said. "I think a lot of us just need to get out of our heads and go back to playing Yankee baseball the right way".

Tanaka had trouble with his splitter.

The strong showing on the mound occurred after New York's pitchers posted an 8.01 ERA in three games in Houston and Friday's rain-shortened 9-6 loss in the series opener.

It was New York's first one-hit shutout since September 22, 2014, and its first shutout with one hit or less and no walks since Mike Mussina lost his ideal game bid with two outs in the ninth at Fenway Park on September 2, 2001.

LeBron responds to Barkely's 'Inside The NBA' invitation
You just know Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal are going to say something to try and get James off his game. The first weekend of the playoffs, we'll put you up at a good hotel. "LeBron, you have my number".

Four relievers combined on three scoreless innings and Alex Colome tossed a ideal ninth for his third save. "It didn't really matter what we were going through".

Before Anderson homered, things started unraveling for Tanaka (1-1), who retired eight of the first 10 hitters he faced. Eight of his next 10 hitters reached safely, and the right-hander was done. He urged it with a waving hand into the front row of seats just beyond the auxiliary scoreboard in right-center for his third homer and Chicago's first slam of the season. And while the White Sox are not expected to be competitive for some time after missing out on free agent Manny Machado, Jimenez's presence alongside fellow graduated top prospect Yoan Moncada makes the team more watchable than it was a couple of years ago. Kyle Higashioka followed with a sacrifice fly to the warning track in right, and Tyler Wade brought in another run with a safety squeeze.

The New York Yankees lost again on Sunday, but Aaron Judge isn't tripping.

Sabathia became the first Yankees starter to pitch at least five innings, allow no runs and no more than one baserunner without getting a win, according to The Athletic.

Now that Baltimore's Chris Davis snapped his record 0-for-54 skid Saturday, White Sox outfielder Daniel Palka has the longest current hitless streak for an active major league position player, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The two-time All-Star was tagged for seven runs and seven hits over 3 2/3 innings by Tampa Bay in his White Sox debut last Tuesday.

Rodon is 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA in five career starts against the Yankees and 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts in NY.
