Derek Jeter ended a slump with two hits and two RBIs, Alex Rodriguez reached base twice in an eight-run fourth inning and the Yankees battered the White Sox 9-1 on Monday in a game interrupted for nearly two hours by rain. New York sent 13 hitters to the plate, put 11 runners on base and scored eight runs in a 32-minute bottom of the fourth inning, giving the Yanks an opportunity to coast through the final five innings and secure a 9-1 rout over a White Sox team that swept them a month ago. The Yankees only recorded one hit over the rest of the inning, but a walk and two White Sox errors catcher Josh Phegley dropped a foul ball that bounced off his glove and first baseman Adam Dunn threw a potential double-play ball into the outfield allowed them to put three more runs on the board before Reynolds made the final out of the inning. "We were fortunate that we got some bounces that went our way, but for the most part, we had some good at-bats up and down the lineup."
The Yankees piled it on during an eight-run fourth inning and cruised to a 9-1 victory over the a sloppy White Sox club at Yankee Stadium on Monday. Derek Jeter and Austin Romine each had two RBIs, and all but one starter had at least one hit.
