MLB roundup: Sox sweep Yanks; Cubs get swept in Milwaukee
Chris Sale struck out 13 in 7 2/3 stellar innings to get his 15th victory, Alex Rios hit a go-ahead homer, and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 2-1 on Wednesday in Chicago to complete a three-game sweep.
Sale (15-4) outpitched New York's Phil Hughes, allowing one walk and three hits, including Derek Jeter's solo homer in the sixth – the Yankee star's third homer in as many nights. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.
New York's loss and Tampa Bay's victory over Kansas City reduced the Yankees' lead in the AL East to three games, their smallest since before play on June 26.
