The White Sox rallied in a seesaw game against the New York Yankees Monday for an 9-6 victory, ending a three-game losing streak and increasing their American League Central lead over the idle Detroit Tigers to two games.
Only 27,561 were at U.S. Cellular Field for the first of three games between American League division leaders. They saw the Sox rally from an early 3-0 deficit with a five-run fifth inning chasing starter Freddy Garcia. The Yankees sent Sox starter Gavin Floyd to the showers in the third in his shortest outing of the season (2 1/3 innings.)
The Sox had home runs from Dewayne Wise, Gordon Beckham and Adam Dunn in the victory, the homers among 13 hits for the Sox.
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter homered in the sixth, part of a four-hit night for the Yankees captain.
The game saw each team use six pitchers.
