White Sox pitcher Dylan Covey faces Yankees in second career start

Masahiro Tanaka will take the ball for NY, while Dylan Covey is scheduled to start for the White Sox.

The Cubs came from 6-2 down to get past the Milwaukee Brewers 9-7 and back to winning ways on Tuesday.

All these factors should typically be enough to cripple a White Sox club that has never flaunted a large margin for error, and yet this openly rebuilding team is still clinging to a winning record (7-6) and snapping eight-game New York Yankees winning streaks on the road, because Avisail Garcia can not be stopped.

Speaking of the name Garcia, Avisail continued his awesome start to the season tonight with a three-run bomb in the seventh inning to make it a four-run game for the Sox.

Nevertheless, the team wants to avoid any spread of the disease, and they will send Masahiro Tanaka (1-1) to the mound tonight to help win the rubber game of the series with the White Sox.

The Los Angeles Angels beat the Houston Astros 5-2, the Cleveland Indians thrashed the Minnesota Twins 11-4 and the San Francisco Giants edged the Kansas City Royals 2-1. Even though he's only given up five hits, he has walked five batters, and that number will have to come down if he's going to continue having success against a solid Yankees lineup that includes some big boppers. Covey allowed eight earned runs and 10 hits in five innings.

The Blue Jays' slump continued as ace Marcus Stroman struggled in a home start against the Red Sox.

In Montgomery's first two starts, he is 1-0 with a 4.22 earned run average and has generated 29 swings and misses.

Tanaka (2-1), who lugged an 8.36 ERA into the night, allowed one run, six hits and two walks over a season-best seven innings.

Nintendo Switch sales are off to a roaring start
The Nintendo 3DS isn't exactly marketed towards adults, but its flip screens are easy for young children to want to snap in half. This is according to Citigroup, Inc., which says the Switch is ultimately too bulky for children to use easily (via Bloomberg ).

Asked before Tuesday's game if the team is over-performing, Girardi said, "I don't think so".

Authorities say a former National Football League player was driving a truck that struck and killed his 3-year-daughter in the driveway of their suburban Phoenix home.

Cano crushed a 2-1 pitch from Tom Koehler (0-1) 441 feet to right-center for his second home run, a two-run shot that scored Jarrod Dyson. "I think he knows that he can throw three pitches and he knows he can spot his fastball". It was third homer of his career. The 32-year-old right-hander's first road victory for the Chicago White Sox was one to savor. A night after totaling four hits - none that left the infield - in a 4-1 loss to Chicago, the Yankees got five hits the first time through the order, all on line drives to the outfield. A week ago, he became the first player to hit two runs off the restaurant beyond the center-field wall but Wednesday the right fielder might have outdone himself.

The White Sox capitalized on a fielding error by shortstop Pete Kozma in the seventh to add more runs.

And on the day their top minor league pitching prospect, James Kaprielian, underwent Tommy John surgery, this was most welcome news for the Yankees.

Leury Garcia also homered for the White Sox, who won for the fifth time in their past seven games. The under is also 6-1 in Tanaka's last seven home starts and 5-2 in his last seven outings when he's coming off four days of rest.

But the Yankees put together four straight hits, capped by their first back-to-back homers of the year from Starlin Castro and Judge, to pull to an 8-1 lead.

"I was trying to throw a slider for a strike and he got me with it", Severino said.
