The New York Yankees (58-55) wasted several prime scoring opportunities in a 5-1 series-opening loss to the Chicago White Sox (46-68) on Monday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.

New York went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left 13 on base. They had six hits, five of which were singles. The lone run came on Billy McKinney’s sacrifice fly in the seventh.

Gerrit Cole allowed four runs over seven innings, two of which were charged to him after he departed. Tommy Kahnle came on and struggled, ultimately putting the game out of reach for New York.

Manager Aaron Boone was tossed from the contest in the eighth after arguing balls and strikes with the home plate umpire Laz Diaz. He leads the American League with six ejections this season.
