White Sox: Win series against New York Yankees in the Bronx
With a 4-1 victory on Wednesday night, the White Sox win the three-game series against the New York Yankees in the Bronx.
Despite the loss on Tuesday night, the White Sox have now won their last five series, two against the Tigers, and the rest against the Twins, Royals, and Yankees.
And, they did it against the Yankees without Jose Abreu for the entire series and without Tim Anderson in Wednesday’s game.
This victory was due to solid pitching from Reynaldo Lopez, a bunch of hits from Ryan LaMarre, and an outstanding catch from Avisail Garcia.

Reynaldo Lopez earned his fifth win of the season. His final line was one of his best. He pitched seven innings, gave up five hits and one earned run. He walked two batters and K’d six of them. Rick Renteria chose Xavier Cedeno to pitch in the eighth and he put up a row of goose eggs. Jace Fry earned his fourth save after striking out two batters after giving up a single to Miguel Andujar. Against the hard-hitting Yankees, the White Sox pitching staff did its job and held them to only six hits.
Interestingly, the White Sox also had six hits. Unlike the Yankees, the Sox were able to convert those hits into runs. The Sox took the lead in the second with two runs. Kevan Smith and Matt Davidson singled, then Ryan LaMarre doubled and they both scored.
LaMarre hit another double in the fourth that scored Yoan Moncada to bring the score to 3-0. LaMarre then cemented the fact that he likes Yankee pitching after he hit a home run in the seventh inning. By the time the game was over, LaMarre had eight bases and four RBI.
Another highlight of the game came in the second inning. Yankees third baseman Neil Walker hit a line shot off of Lopez to right field. Avisail Garcia made a highlight-reel catch to rob Walker of a home run. It seemed to set the pace for the White Sox, as the team continued to dominate the Bronx Bombers.
In the last 15 games, the White Sox are 11-4. The White Sox come home to face the Boston Red Sox for a four-game series for Labor Day weekend. Lucas Giolito will pitch against Rick Porcello.
