Brian McCann blasts 3-run homer against White Sox on May 23, 2014
GAME 47: The Windy City has become a cold and unwelcoming place for the Yankees, with a 1-3 record so far on this Chicago-swing of their 10 game road trip. They split a two-game set with the Cubs, and dropped the first two of four against the White Sox.
In a game which the Yanks blew a 3-run lead and battled back to overtake the White Sox, closer David Robertson failed to protect a lead for the first time this season. His 0-2 fastball to Adam Dunn with a runner on in the bottom of the 9th was blasted in the right centerfield seats, and Robertson knew it the second it left the bat.
The game began on a high note as Brian McCann smoked a Hector Noesi fastball over the right field wall with Derek Jeter and Mark Teixiera on base, 3-0 Yanks.

Kuroda Labors, Middle Holds, But…

Starter Hiroki Kuroda hit the 100-pitch mark after 4 2/3, and was lifted after serving up a 2-run go-ahead homer to Alexei Ramirez. 4-3 White Sox. Dellin Betances and Adam Warren kept the Sox in check over the next 3 innings, allowing the Yanks to claw back and re-take the lead in the top of the 7th. Two singles, a sac bunt, a wild pitch and a sac fly combined for a 5-4 Yankees lead. 
Here’s the box score and a recap.

MEMORY LANE: On this date in 1998, the Yankees hammered the Boston Red Sox 12-3, as David Wells got the win, and the Bronx Bombers improved their record to 32-10. Those were the days, no? …
