NEW YORK -- The Yankees were beneficiaries of back-to-back replay reviews in the sixth inning of Saturday afternoon's contest against the White Sox.

Carlos Beltran led off the inning with a solo home run off of Scott Carroll into the first row of seats in right field. That prompted a precautionary crew-chief review for fan interference, and after 53 seconds, the call was confirmed, good for Beltran's 15th home run.

Martin Prado followed the blast with a looper down the left-field line. He stretched for a double, sliding in head-first to second base but was called out. Manager Joe Girardi waited for the signal from bench coach Tony Pena and then issued a challenge.

After one minute and 27 seconds, the call was overturned, which proved to be important. Prado moved to third on a Chase Headley groundout and then scored when Stephen Drew sacrificed him home with a fly ball to right field, extending the Yankees lead to 5-2.
