CHICAGO -- Melky Cabrera and Alexei Ramirez both homered and John Danks tied a season high with eight strikeouts as the White Sox defeated the Yankees, 8-2, on Saturday night at U.S. Cellular Field, snapping a six-game losing streak vs. New York and tying the three-game weekend series.
The White Sox, who got an RBI double from Jose Abreu in the first inning and a solo shot from Ramirez in the second, grabbed a 6-1 lead on Cabrera's three-run homer in the four-run fifth. It was the eighth time in the last 10 games that Chicago has scored at least six runs.
