White Sox Vs. Yankees Score Update: Chicago Leads 7-6 In The 5th Inning

The pitching wasn't very effective for either the White Sox or the Yankees in the early stages of Friday night's game, and Chicago holds a 7-6 edge in the fifth inning.

The Yankees scored four runs in the first off the usually reliable Jose Quintana, but the White Sox responded with four runs of their own in the second off of New York starter Adam Warren, who was making his MLB debut. Chicago picked up two more runs in the third to claim a 6-4 lead and Warren's day was done.

New York got two runs in the fourth to even the score at 6-6, and then A.J. Pierzynski pushed Chicago back ahead with a solo home run in the top of the fifth. It was his second homer of the night.
