Yankees score five in 8th to stun White Sox
Eduardo Nunez’s two-run double capped a five-run eighth inning as the New York Yankees rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox, 6-4, last night.
Pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson tied the score with an RBI single off reliever Donnie Veal and New York went on to win for the 12th time in 14 home games.
Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run triple and Alejandro De Aza homered for the last-place White Sox, who dropped their fifth straight.
Alfonso Soriano’s two-run single off Nate Jones (4-5) cut the deficit to 4-3.
Boone Logan (5-2) pitched a perfect eighth, and Mariano Rivera earned his 40th save.
Derek Jeter finished with two hits, giving him 3,315 to pass Eddie Collins (3,313) for ninth on the career list.
Indians 4, Orioles 3
Ubaldo Jimenez pitched six shutout innings while Yan Gomes and Asdrubal Cabrera drove in two runs apiece, and Cleveland survived a shaky ninth inning.
Jimenez (10-9) has allowed three earned runs or less in eight consecutive starts. The right-hander allowed four hits.
Gomes’s two-run double was the key hit in Cleveland’s sixth. Cabrera had sacrifices flies in the fourth and sixth.
Orioles starter Chris Tillman (15-5) allowed four runs in 5 1∕ 3 innings. The right-hander has one win in his last six starts.
The Orioles got back in the game in the ninth against Indians closer Chris Perez, who pitched in a non-save situation. Nate McLouth hit a three-run homer but Perez struck out Brian Roberts and Manny Machado before retiring Chris Davis, who leads the majors with 47 homers, on a ground ball.
