A-Rod Singles, Yankees Lose 8-1 to White Sox
CHICAGO (AP)--Alex Rodriguez blooped a single in his first at-bat of the season hours after being hit with a long suspension, but that was it for the embattled slugger as the Chicago White Sox snapped a 10-game losing streak with an 8-1 win Monday night over the struggling New York Yankees.

Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 by Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis case, a punishment he is appealing.

That clearly was the biggest story on a day when New York's Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list because of a strained right calf and Andy Pettitte (7-9) got knocked out early. Alex Rios drove in four runs, Alexei Ramirez added four hits and Jose Quintana (6-3) pitched into the seventh for the White Sox.
