The New York Yankees bounced back from Saturday’s loss with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Nestor Cortes got the start for New York and tossed eight innings of one-run ball while striking out seven. Clay Holmes recorded the final three outs of the game.
The Yankees scored three of their five runs in the second inning with two outs. Aaron Hicks and DJ LeMahieu worked back-to-back bases-loaded walks and Jose Trevino scored on a wild pitch.
Joey Gallo crushed a two-run home run to right in the ninth to extend the lead to 5-1.
Other than Gallo’s homer, the Yankees had just one hit. Isiah Kiner-Falefa singled to right in the second.
The Yankees will head to Baltimore to begin a four-game series with the Orioles on Monday night. Luis Severino will get the start. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
