Philip Humber No-Hits Yankees Into Seventh Inning, White Sox Win 2-0

Philip Humber was, apparently, exactly what the White Sox needed to break their losing streak. They had lost three straight and 10 of 11 coming into their series at Yankee Stadium beginning Monday Night.

Humber took a no-hitter into the seventh inning; Alex Rodriguez singled to break it up, but that was the only hit Humber allowed, along with two walks, in seven innings pitched. Chris Sale got the first two outs of the eighth and then Sergio Santos came in when Yankees manager Joe Girardi sent Eric Chavez up to bat for Andruw Jones.

Santos gave up a hit to Chavez, but got out of the eighth inning and then got out of the ninth after Curtis Granderson led off with a single. Mark Teixeira hit into a double play and Santos struck out A-Rod to end the game. It’s only the second save recorded by a Sox pitcher this year (Sale has the other).

The Sox scored a run on a double by Carlos Quentin and a pair of groundouts (RBI to Adam Dunn) in the fourth and added an insurance run in the ninth on a RBI single by Paul Konerko.

The two teams will meet again at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night at 6 p.m. CDT.

White Sox Seek Winning Answers In New York

The White Sox have lost 10 of their last 11, and just got swept out of Detroit. Their 8-14 record is their worst after 22 games since 2001, the year after a division title season.

Wait, it gets worse. The 2001 team fell to 14-29, after which they decided it was batting coach Bill Buckner's fault; they fired him and replaced him with Von Joshua... which is exactly what the Cubs did in the middle of their failed 2009 season, firing batting coach Gerald Perry and replacing him with Joshua.

The good news is that the Sox have hitters who should be hitting who aren't, and you'd think eventually the bullpen issues will get solved. And the 2001 team turned it around and finished over .500 at 83-79. Last year's Sox got off to a bad start, too, and then turned in a June and July to remember.

Yankee Stadium is a tough place to win no matter where you're coming in as a visitor; tonight, Philip Humber faces the Yankees' A.J. Burnett.

It gets underway at 6 p.m. CDT and tonight, can be seen on WCIU.
