Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez started Tuesday night with seven scoreless innings to help the White Sox take a 4-0 lead over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
Gonzalez pitched four perfect innings before Starlin Castro singled to open the fourth. But Aaron Judge grounded into a double play to erase the Yankees’ only baserunner through five innings.
Gonzalez gave up a hit in the sixth and another in the seventh, though Jacoby Ellsbury’s bunt single in the seventh was erased by another double play. Gonzalez didn’t issue a walk over the first seven innings while throwing just 62 pitches.
Meanwhile, Yankees right-hander Luis Severino retired the first eight Sox batters he faced.
Leury Garcia ended the perfection when he hit a 96 mph fastball out to right-center field for his first home run of the season and a 1-0 Sox lead.
Severino, 23, struck out eight in the first five innings. The Sox didn’t reach base again after Garcia until Tim Anderson’s single to open the seventh, and Melky Cabrera reached first on a fielding error by shortstop Pete Kozma.
Avisail Garcia hit his third home run of the season with one out, a no-doubter to left-center field, for a 4-0 Sox lead.
Severino struck out 10 and walked none over eight innings.
Third baseman Todd Frazier was back hitting in the cage and hanging out in the Sox clubhouse Tuesday afternoon, but he was still out of the starting lineup as he tries to regain his strength after battling the flu.
Frazier, who missed his fifth game, said he lost weight while ill and has never had a stomach flu this intense.
"I’ve been eating a lot better, drinking a lot better,” Frazier said. “But it’s taken a toll a little bit. … Right now I’m feeling better, but I want to be a 100 percent so nothing really comes back and bites me.”
