CHICAGO (AP) --- Jordan Montgomery matched his season high with seven solid
innings and closer Aroldis Chapman shut down a ninth-inning rally just in time,
lifting the New York Yankees over the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Monday night.
New York led 6-1 entering the ninth, but Yankees reliever Chasen Shreve gave up
a three-run homer to Tim Anderson and Chapman allowed an RBI double to Jose
Abreu. Chapman retired Avisail Garcia and Todd Frazier to finish his eighth
save and first since returning from the disabled list a week ago.
Recently recalled outfielder Tyler Austin lined a solo homer and had a
sacrifice fly for new York, which won for the third time in 13 games to keep
pace with Boston atop the AL East.
Frazier hit a solo homer for the only run off Montgomery (6-4).
New York took advantage of three Chicago errors to score four unearned runs off
starter David Holmberg (1-2).
