(NEW YORK, NY) - Paul Konerko's two-run home run in the top of the eighth inning gave the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.
Robinson Cano gave the Yankees the early lead with a solo home run in the second off White Sox starter Gavin Floyd.
Gordon Beckham tied the game with an RBI single in the fifth before Brett Gardner put New York ahead 2-1 with another solo shot off Floyd.
That set up Konerko's heroics as the White Sox' captain hit a two-run blast off Rafael Soriano to give Chicago wins in the first two games of the four-game series in the Bronx.
