Yankees Aim to Sweep White Sox in Series Finale

The New York Yankees are gearing up to complete a three-game sweep against the Chicago White Sox, riding high on a six-game winning streak and some serious home run power. With left-hander Carlos Rodon starting, the Yankees are set to maintain their top spot in the American League East.

Winning Streak and Offensive Power

The Yankees are on fire, winning six straight games, including a 6-1 victory over the White Sox on Saturday. They’ve clinched their 12th series win in 15 series this season, thanks to their league-leading 66 home runs.

Key Player Contributions

  • Juan Soto: Hit two home runs on Saturday, bringing his season total to 11.
  • Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton: Both have hit 10 or more home runs.
  • Luis Gil: Set a team rookie record with 14 strikeouts in Saturday’s game.

Pitching Matchup

Carlos Rodon

Carlos Rodon (4-2, 3.31 ERA) will take the mound for the Yankees. This game marks his first time facing his old team, the White Sox, where he spent seven seasons and made one All-Star appearance.

Chris Flexen

Chris Flexen (2-3, 4.46 ERA) will start for the White Sox. Flexen has a 2.61 ERA in four starts since joining the rotation but has struggled against the Yankees, holding a 6.00 ERA in three career games.

White Sox’s Struggles

Offensive Inconsistencies

The White Sox have been inconsistent at the plate, with high strikeout rates and missed opportunities. They struck out 16 times in their last game and couldn’t capitalize on a bases-loaded situation in the first inning.

Manager’s Insight

Manager Pedro Grifol emphasized the need for better execution, saying, “We have to do a better job of putting the ball in play.”

Series Implications

A sweep would reinforce the Yankees’ dominance and extend their winning streak, while the White Sox look to avoid a sweep and address their offensive challenges.


The New York Yankees, led by strong pitching and powerful hitting, are well-positioned to complete a sweep against the struggling Chicago White Sox. With critical division implications, the series finale promises to be a pivotal encounter for both teams.
