It wasn’t exactly a late-90s offensive explosion that Joe Torre might have found familiar, but for this Yankees lineup, a 5-3 win against the White Sox counted as a high-scoring affair. Getting more than four runs for the first time in two weeks, the Yankees got some big hits and took advantage of some big mistakes to win for the third day in a row. Martin Prado stayed hot with three hits, including the two-run double that gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning. Carlos Beltran also homered in the game, and Prado scored the final run with some daring base-running in the sixth. Sloppy White Sox defense led to the first Yankees run, and helped set the stage for at least two other runs in the game. Hiroki Kuroda got the win after laboring through the first two innings but ultimately settling in to allow two runs through six. Dellin Betances got the Yankees out of a jam int he seventh inning, and Dave Robertson finished off his 34th save, tied for the third-most in the American League.
