Pierzynski Homers Twice, White Sox Beat Yankees
NEW YORK (AP) -- A.J. Pierzynski homered twice, Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez also connected and the Chicago White Sox pounded the Yankees so hard that New York brought in outfielder Dewayne Wise to pitch in a 14-7 romp Friday night.

A night after the White Sox rallied to win at Yankee Stadium on Dayan Viciedo's three-run homer in the ninth, they made it a short and sour major league debut for Yankees starter Adam Warren.

By the end, the Yankees brought in Wise for his pro pitching debut. Throwing a 79 mph fastball, he retired Konerko and Alex Rios in order to close a four-run ninth inning.

Rookie Jose Quintana (3-1) fell behind 4-0 in the first inning, then hung in to give the White Sox their fourth straight win in a matchup of AL division leaders.
