Yankees drop series opener to White Sox

In a rain-shortened game, The New York Yankees lost their fourth straight game with their 9-6 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Despite leading 4-1 through three innings and having a 5-3 lead going into the fifth inning, the Yankees were unable to hold onto their lead after a four-run fifth inning for Chicago.

After Gio Urshela brought the Yankees within one run in the bottom of the sixth, the White Sox hit back to back solo home runs to extend their lead to 9-6 before the game was called in the top of the seventh inning.

DJ LeMahieu led the offense, going 2-2 with two RBIs. Brett Gardner, Aaron Judge, Austin Romine, and Urshela all had one RBI.

J.A Happ got the loss, as he pitched four innings and have up six runs. Happ has yet to pitch past the fifth inning this season after two starts against the Baltimore Orioles and tonight's outing against the White Sox.

The Yankees will be back in action tomorrow at 1:05 PM as CC Sabathia makes his first start of the season.
