Sox Rein In Yanks

June 29 versus New York Yankees

They will someday be back to create havoc but at least tonight the Evil Empire was defeated

Short Take:   Shields Turns In Quality Start As Sox Split 4-Game Series

The Sox sent James Shields to the mound as the Sox faced off against Luis Cessa and the Yankees in the finale of their 4-game series. Shields previous outing against the As was less than spectacular, lasting only 3 innings and giving up 6 runs on 7 hits, including 3 home runs. James however turned in a quality start Thursday night, going 6 1/3 and giving up 2 runs (none of them via homer!) on 5 hits as the Sox earned a series split, defeating the Yankees 4-3.

For the second Thursday in a row the game was delayed by rain and when play finally started shortly after 10 the Yankess wasted no time getting on the board. Brett Gardner singled on the second pitch of the game and came around to score two batters later on a Jose Abreau fielding error. With one run in, runners on first and second and no outs it looked like Sox fans were in for a long night but Shields limited the damage to that one unearned run, inducing a double-play and flyout to the the Yankees threat. 

The Sox got on the board in the bottom of the second as Adam Engel sent a ball to deep right, in and out of the glove of Rob Refsnyder, allowing Yolmer Sanchez to score. Engel would score the next batter as Omar Narvaez singled to left, giving the Sox a 2-1 lead.

The Yankess tied the game in the top of the fourth as Shields issued a walk to Jacoby Ellsbury and singles to Austin Romaine and Ronald Torreyes. The Sox however answered with two runs of their own in the bottom half. Yolmer Sanchez led off the inning drawing a walk and was joined on base when Adam Engel was hit by a 95 mph fastball. Adam got the last laugh as both he and Yolmer would come around to score on a Willy Garcia double to left.

Shields gave one of those runs back in the top of the sixth as Ellsbury tripled to center to lead off the inning and scored on an Austin Romaine single. The Yankees again threatened in the top of the ninth as noted ball killer Aaron Judge faced David Robinson with one on and two out. Judge was looking for revenge as Melky’s great catch at the wall robbed him of home run heroics in the fifth. Heroics were once again denied as Robertson got Judge to strikeout on an 84 mph curve in the dirt to earn the save and bring home a White Sox Winner. The Yankees headed off to catch the red-eye to Houston and the Sox slept soundly in their own beds, knowing they held the Evil Empire at bay for the evening
