McCann’s Heroics Lift Yanks
NEW YORK (AP) — Pinch-hitter Brian McCann lined a three-run homer with two outs in the 10th inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Ichiro Suzuki had a two-run single and the Yankees rallied for their fourth straight victory following a 2-7 slide. Chasing an American League playoff spot, they finished a 4-2 homestand against two losing teams by getting their second game-ending hit against Chicago in three days.
Avisail Garcia hit a tying homer in the ninth for the White Sox, who have lost a season-high six in a row and dropped their last eight games at Yankee Stadium.
New York rallied for four unearned runs off All-Star ace Chris Sale in the sixth to take a 4-3 lead, capitalizing on an error by left fielder Dayan Viciedo.
