The Yankees (47-30) were finally able to beat the Chicago White Sox (42-36) after dropping the first two games of the four game series. Led by an outstanding pitching performance from Hiroki Kuroda the Yankees were able to score their runs via the long ball off of White Sox starter Jake Peavy in the 4-0 victory.

Kuroda was phenomenal in what was arguably his best performance of the season. Kuroda went seven innings allowed no runs on three hits (all singles) and struck out a season high 11. Kuroda most likely would have gone longer had his pitch count not reached 107.

The Yankees got on the board in the bottom of the first when Curtis Granderson launched a solo shot into the right field stands. It was Granderson’s 23rd of the season.

In the second inning Dewayne Wise drilled an RBI double into the right center field gap putting the Yankees up 2-0. Wise would then put the Yankees up 3-0 in the fifth inning with his second home run of the season.

Robinson Cano added a solo homer in the sixth inning; his 19th of the season, putting the Yanks up 4-0.

Jake Peavy went eight innings gave up four runs on eight hits and struck out 11.

The Yankees and White Sox play again Sunday afternoon.  Phil Hughes (8-6 4.48) gets the start for the Yankees while Gavin Floyd (6-7 4.80) will go for the White Sox. Pregame coverage begins at 1:30, first pitch at 2:05 right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
