White Sox Vs. Yankees Final Score: Chicago Takes 2nd Straight

Chicago White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has played exceptionally since coming to the South Side, but he delivered maybe his biggest hit of the season Tuesday night vs. the New York Yankees.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Youkilis stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and smacked an opposite-field grand slam to put Chicago up 6-2.

That would be enough for White Sox starter Francisco Liriano, who allowed only two earned runs over six innings while striking out seven batters. Reliever Jesse Crain allowed a run on a Russell Martin homer in the top of the seventh, but that would be it for the Yankees, who were blanked by Matt Thornton and Brett Myers.

Paul Konerko also hit his 21st homer of the season for the White Sox.
