The Yankees pulled away early on to give their starter run support, scoring six times in the second inning, headlined by Giancarlo Stanton's grand slam. It was the slugger's first slam since 2014, as he took the ball the opposite way against White Sox starter Lucas Giolito. The Sox hurler suffered his ninth loss after getting seven runs against him on the night.
Aaron Hicks also went deep for New York, who earned their first road series sweep of at least three games since taking three in a row from the Los Angeles Angels from April 27th-29th. This helps them get over an ugly four-game series sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox from this past weekend.
Severino retired 11 in a row at one point after allowing two runs on three hits in the first inning. He did give up Tim Anderson's 15th home run of the season, Giolito lasted five innings in his first loss of the month, as he had gone 2-0 with a 3.42 ERA in his past four starts.
Stanton's long ball was his 27th of the season, as he had not recorded a grand slam since April 18th, 2014 against the Seattle Mariners. He now has six slams in his career. Meanwhile, Hicks continues his career year with his 19th blast, as his previous career-high was 15, which was set last season. The Yankees will return home this weekend to host the Texas Rangers.
