|Near No Hitter in Sox Win Over Yankees
|NEW YORK (AP) -- Phil Humber held the Yankees hitless until Alex Rodriguez grounded a single up the middle with one out in the seventh inning Monday night and the Chicago White Sox made the effort stand up with a 2-0 victory over New York.
The White Sox won for only the second time in 12 games. Chicago snapped a 23-inning scoreless drought in the fourth when Carlos Quentin doubled and scored on Adam Dunn's grounder, and added a run in the ninth after a popup fell behind the mound, in front of charging shortstop Derek Jeter.
Sergio Santos got the final four outs for his first save and Chicago's second save in eight chances this season.
