CHICAGO — Miguel Gonzalez pitched five-hit ball over seven innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-0 on Wednesday night.
One night after getting blanked for the fifth time, the White Sox returned the favor and handed the Yankees their fifth shutout.
Gonzalez (2-4) matched his longest outing of the season and shut down New York after it pounded out a season-high 20 hits in Tuesday's 9-0 romp.
Tim Anderson capped a four-run second with a two-run double off Michael Pineda (3-8), and the White Sox won for the sixth time in eight games. They took two of three from New York to capture their fifth straight series, another twist for a team that got off to a 23-10 start and then went into a huge tailspin.
