White Sox 4
Another night, another Jeterian moment.
Derek Jeter went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a homer, as the Yankees erased a 4-0 deficit from the first inning.
Andy Pettitte, was not at his best. In the first inning, Pettitte gave up singles to Alexei Ramirez and Gordon Beckham, before giving up a three-run homer to Paul Kornerko, as the White Sox took a 3-0 lead.
But, the Yankees came back.
Alex Rodriguez's single brought home Jeter with the Yankees first run. Robinson Cano followed with an RBI single to cut the deficit to one run, 3-2.
With Brett Gardner on in the fifth the Yankee tied it, when Jeter blasted a two run shot to left. The homer was Jeter's fourth of the year.
Pettitte settled down after the first to give up only one run in his next five innings of work. Pettitte struck out three and got a no-decision. His ERA rose to 2.12.
In the seventh with Francisco Cervelli and Gardner on base, Jeter legged out a two run triple to right. The Yankees led 6-4.
Mariano Rivera came into the ninth, and did what he does best - shut down the White Sox for his seventh save of the year.
