New York Yankees

Melky Cabrera finished 2-3 with a home run to doom the New York Yankees as they fell to the White Sox on the South Side of Chicago tonight.

Saturday night for the New York Yankees turned out to be one of those ho-hum kind of games. Starter Bryan Mitchell simply couldn’t get the job done – seven hits and four earned runs allowed in four innings – and they fell to the Chicago White Sox by a final of 8-2.


It was former Yankees outfielder Melky Cabrera who did the most damage.

Finishing 2-3 with three runs batted in and two runs scored, including a three-run shot in the fifth inning, Cabrera spearheaded a four-run fifth inning for Chicago.

While White Sox starter John Danks couldn’t get through the fifth, he only surrendered a single run on three hits while striking out eight Yankees. In fact, none of the Yankees bats came to play with only five total hits on the night (no Yankee picking up more than one respectively).

Sunday will feature the last game of the series.
