Recap


White Sox 4, Yankees 3: Dayan Viciedo belted a three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning as visiting Chicago snapped New York's five-game winning streak.

Viciedo drilled a high fastball from David Robertson (0-2) over the fence in left for his 14th homer after reliever Clay Rapada threw wildly into center field on a potential double-play ball.

Alejandro De Aza went 4-for-5 with a home run for the White Sox, who snapped a string of six consecutive losses to the Yankees.

Hector Santiago (2-1) earned the win despite allowing a solo homer to Mark Teixeira in the eighth, and Addison Reed worked around a leadoff single in the ninth for his 11th save.

Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano had back-to-back RBI doubles for New York, which got 7 1/3 superb innings of one-run ball from Ivan Nova.

Yankees captain Derek Jeter singled in the seventh inning to move into a tie with Cal Ripken Jr. for 13th place on the career hits list with 3,184.

Dylan Axelrod allowed two runs on six hits in a career-high seven innings for Chicago, which maintained a 2 1/2-game lead over Cleveland atop the AL Central Division.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cano has seven RBIs during his five-game hitting streak. ... Yankees C Russell Martin (back) sat out for the fourth time in five games, but manager Joe Girardi said he was available if needed. ...

The Yankees promoted RHP Ryota Igarashi from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take the spot of Andy Pettitte. ... White Sox RHP Jesse Crain was unavailable Thursday due to tightness in his shoulder.
