Nearly no-hit, Yankees lose series opener

It was Kansas City all over again. A.J. Burnett allowed one run through eight innings tonight, but Phil Humber carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and the White Sox beat the Yankees 2-0 in the first game of this four-game series. It was reminiscent of last August when Burnett allowed one run through eight innings against the Royals and was beaten by another largely forgotten former first-round pick, Bryan Bullington, who carried a no-hitter into the fifth. Burnett was outstanding, but the Yankees stranded runners in scoring position in the seventh and eighth. Rafael Soriano returned from sore back but allowed a run after letting a leadoff single drop just inches from the mound.
