Severino key in Yankees's 7-3 win over Chicago
(CHICAGO) – Luis Severino has been working on his slider with New York Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild. It's beginning to pay off, too. Severino pitched seven effective innings in his first win in a month, Giancarlo Stanton hit his first grand slam in four years and the Yankees swept the Chicago White Sox with a 7-3 victory on Wednesday night. Aaron Hicks also homered as wild card-leading New York closed out a 3-4 trip with its third consecutive win. Severino (15-5) retired 11 in a row after the White Sox used three straight hits to open a 2-0 lead in the first. After Tim Anderson led off the fifth with his 15th homer, Severino fanned the next two batters, and Austin Romine threw out Yoan Moncada trying to steal second. White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (7-9) was tagged for seven runs and six hits in five innings in his first loss in a month. He unraveled for a while in the second, beginning with Gleyber Torres' leadoff walk on four pitches. After Miguel Andujar struck out, the next five batters reached safely. Chicago (41-73) had won a season-high four straight before the sweep by New York (71-42). Jose Abreu and Daniel Palka each had two hits and drove in a run for the White Sox.
