It was a rough Sunday for the New York Yankees as they were swept by the Chicago White Sox in a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium.
Chicago won the first game, 3-1, and the second game, 5-0.
In Game 1, Jameson Taillon made the start and tossed seven innings of one-run ball while striking out seven. Aroldis Chapman struggled in relief as he allowed a pair of runs in the ninth.
Yasmani Grandal put Chicago up 1-0 in the fourth with an RBI single.
Aaron Judge crushed a game-tying solo home run in the eighth.
The White Sox scored two runs in the ninth to take the lead. AJ Pollock homered and Adam Engel smoked an RBI double.
Judge had three of the team’s eight hits.
In Game 2, Luis Severino fired seven shutout innings while striking out five. Jonathan Loaisiga surrendered four runs in relief while Miguel Castro allowed one.
New York had just three hits in the game.
Chicago scored all five runs in the eighth with two outs. Andrew Vaughn and Reese McGuire delivered back-to-back RBI singles and Tim Anderson busted the game open with a three-run shot.
The Yankees will try to bounce back on Monday night when they begin a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles in the Bronx.
