WHITE SOX 4, YANKEES 3
Reliever Clay Rapada’s wild toss to second base on a potential double-play ball set up the AL Central-leading White Sox. With closer Rafael Soriano not available after pitching the past two games, the Yankees had their five-game winning streak end.
Derek Jeter’s bid for a two-run homer was caught by right fielder Alex Rios with his back against the wall for the final out.
Mark Teixeira homered off Hector Santiago (2-1) in the eighth to make it 3-1. Viciedo was the first batter to face Robertson (0-2).
Addison Reed got his 11th save.
