Gonzalez, White Sox win to stop Yanks' 8-game win streak

Yankees looking to keep streak going Chicago White Sox vs New York Yankees Live Stream: Watch MLB Online, Team News

Instead, the Yankees wanted to see Montgomery produce better fastball command and more efficiency with his pitches in his second start after he threw 87 pitches in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against Tampa Bay.

The Cubs came from 6-2 down to get past the Milwaukee Brewers 9-7 and back to winning ways on Tuesday. NY has rebounded from a 1-4 start with its longest winning streak since a 10-game run in June 2012. The Sox' slugger is 2-for-27 in seven games on the current road trip and has one extra-base hit, a double, this season.

Covey was trying to become the first White Sox starter to get his first win at Yankee Stadium since Bob Cain on May 4, 1950, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Los Angeles Angels beat the Houston Astros 5-2, the Cleveland Indians thrashed the Minnesota Twins 11-4 and the San Francisco Giants edged the Kansas City Royals 2-1.

It was Bird's first three-hit game of his career.

The Yankees ran into a buzz saw last night, proving once again that good pitching will beat good hitting, as the White Sox trimmed the sails of the Bombers by a score of 4-1 at Yankee Stadium.

The Blue Jays' slump continued as ace Marcus Stroman struggled in a home start against the Red Sox.

It seems that Judge can only hit home runs.

Making his second career start, Montgomery (1-0) immediately found himself in a first-inning jam. The right-hander induced 10 groundouts, struck out six and allowed six hits and two walks, lowering his ERA from 8.36 to 6.00.

Kylie Jenner hangs out with Travis Scott at Coachella bash
According to a HollywoodLife source, Scott is a playboy and he might not be in it for the longterm. Tyga also attended Coachella over the weekend, but partied separately from Kylie and Scott.

"Obviously today didn't go the way I wanted, but you kind of have to take it like it is and learn from the mistakes", Covey said.

The Yankees have been overachieving a bit this year and have been playing well. "I think I'm a little more mature now to go out there and know my game plan and know what I'm going to try to do".

- Chase Headley is batting in the two-hole for the first time this season.

The scorching hot Avi Garcia breaks the game open for the White Sox. The official distance into the left field bleachers was 448 feet.

"All of sudden you put up a four-spot because of a couple home runs", Girardi said, "and then Tanaka could really just go to work". After Cabrera grounded to second, Abreu, also swinging at a first-pitch sinker, doubled to left to make it 4-1.

Leury Garcia also homered for the White Sox, who won for the fifth time in their past seven games. Tanaka didn't have his best stuff but he grinded out a nice 7 IP, 1 ER outing while the offense hit four out of the park en route to a 9-1 victory.

Yankees: SS Didi Gregorius (strained right shoulder) lined a single to center and struck out against RHP Nick Rumbelow (Tommy John surgery) in a simulated game. The Yankees are going to be playoff contenders if they can get Quintana to return to NY.

Starlin Castro had three hits for NY, and Judge drove in three runs. Quintana (0-3, 6.75) is scheduled to start against Corey Kluber (1-1, 6.38). That was as cheap as a Yankee Stadium cheapie could get but hey, I've said it before: you play at the Yankee Stadium, you play by the Yankee Stadium rules.

Blake Snell (0-2) gave up four runs - one earned - and seven hits in five innings.
