Gamecock great Jordan Montgomery earns first Major League Baseball win

This time, he escaped trouble in the first by getting Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia with runners at second and third.

Aroldis Chapman closed out for his fourth save.

It'll be a matchup of lefties as Jordan Montgomery will start for the Yankees, while Derek Holland will be on the mound for Chicago. The official distance into the left field bleachers was 448 feet. Jeromy Burnitz became the first and last Brewers player to homer in five straight games in August 1997.

The White Sox are 16-34 in their last 50 road games versus a right-handed starter, and 2-5 in their last seven games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Severino was dominant last week in beating the Tampa Bay Rays last week and nearly as good in defeat Tuesday night when the Chicago White Sox ended the Yankees' eight-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory at Yankee Stadium. The entire lineup has been producing, and perhaps the most encouraging sign for the Yankees on Sunday was Greg Bird busting out of his slump.

Jim Johnson (2-0) pitched the ninth. He has also given up 11 hits and six earned runs, so he certainly hammers the strike zone, and the Sox will have to try to take advantage of that. The seven runs allowed was a season high.

A year ago through New York's first 13 games, Headley posted a.182 average and the Yankees were 5-8.

The Yankees are not in a hurry to make a trade, but they should be in the mix for Quintana at the trade deadline, especially if the White Sox lowers their asking price.

Severino gave up two homers - Leury Garcia went deep in the third inning - but allowed just three hits total while striking out 10 and walking nobody. Craig Kimbrel got his sixth save, running his streak to 25 consecutive save chances converted.

Gonzalez took a no-decision Thursday in Cleveland when he allowed three runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out 212 and walked only 57.


The right-hander allowed a third infield hit on a bunt single by Jacoby Ellsbury to start the seventh. "They're a club that also, when they put a barrel on the baseball, they can hit it out of the ballpark". Maybe two. Maybe one. They were 8-14 last April.

The Yankees have a day-off tomorrow and will travel to Pittsburgh for a weekend series vs. the Pirates. The 2016 NL Cy Young Award victor allowed only one other runner as far as second base, finishing with seven strikeouts (see full recap).

Seung-Hwan Oh worked around an RBI double by pinch hitter Gregory Polanco in the ninth to record the Cardinals' first save of the season. Frazier, who is hitting.111 this season, could return Tuesday.

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a double, drove in two runs and scored three times for the Rangers.

Griffin (2-0) spent his first two seasons in the majors with the A's before being released near the end of 2015 after Tommy John surgery a year earlier.

Warren retired 22 straight batters to begin the season before issuing a two-out walk in the seventh. Four runs were earned.

Kyle Gibson (0-2) pitched 5 1/3 innings for Minnesota, giving up three runs on eight hits.

Yankees: Gregorius (right shoulder strain) could play in a simulated game in the next few days.

The Yankees are tied for fourth in the major leagues with 16 home runs.
