CHICAGO — After a disastrous weekend in Boston, the Yankees seem to have righted the ship after a 7-3 win over the White Sox completed a much needed sweep for the Bombers.
New York is now nine games back of the Red Sox for the AL East title, but they are still four games up on the Oakland Athletics for the postseason’s first Wild Card spot.
Things did not start out well at Guaranteed Rate Field, with Luis Severino faltering early on. After a Jose Abreu RBI-double opened the scoring in the first, David Palka drove the All-Star first baseman in to give Chicago an early 2-0 lead.
The Yankees, however, would strongly respond in the top of the second inning.
