Edwin Jackson had a no-hit bid going into the fifth inning, though by then he had already given up two runs. Then, the dam broke and the Yankees scored six times to take an 8-0 lead and pretty much eliminate any hopes the lackluster White Sox offense had of making a comeback.
Over their eleven game road trip, the White Sox went just 3-8, with so many poor performances Thursday evening’s game seemed like a rerun. Jackson’s total line on the night was 4.0 innings pitched, with six runs on four hits and five walks. He struck out two.
The Yankees CC Sabathia had a much better night on the mound. He pitched seven innings giving up three runs, none of them earned. He yielded seven hits and a walk, with six strikeouts.
Ozzie Guillen also made news when it came out that Major League Baseball might discipline him for violating the league’s social media policy, which states that any social media activity must end at least thirty minutes prior to the start of a game. After being ejected during Wednesday’s game, Ozzie issued a few tweets about the ejection from the visiting clubhouse, a violation of the league policy as the game had not officially ended.
The White Sox return home on Friday night to host the Baltimore Orioles. First pitch in that game is at 7:10 P.M., CDT.
