Youkilis' Slam Lifts Sox Over Yankees

It was fitting that the guy who has seen the Yankees pitching more than any other member on the White Sox was the one who defeated them with one swing of the bat.  Kevin Youkilis(above) hit a grand slam in the fifth inning to give the Sox a commanding 6-2 lead and ended in a 7-3 victory for the Sox.  The Sox offense had 12 hits, four of which from leadoff man Dewayne Wise, who has been spectacular since rejoining the organization, but it was Youk's granny that lifted the Sox to victory.

Francisco Liriano picked up his fifth win of the season going six solid innings giving up only two earned runs and striking out seven.  The Sox continued to have good offensive output and have now scored 16 runs in the past two games against the Yankees.  They will try to pull out the brooms on the Bronx bombers on Wednesday in front of a national TV audience when they send their ace Chris Sale(14-4, 2.72) against the Yankees' Phil Hughes(12-10, 4.23).

QUICK WHITE SOX NOTES: Get the BLEEP button ready.  Sources with knowledge of Major League Baseball's matchup schedule confirmed the White Sox will see their former manager, Ozzie Guillen and the Miami Marlins make a stop at U.S. Cellular Field next season.  Guillen was a former player for the White Sox and managed them for eight seasons, the highlight being the 2005 World Series victory.  Ozzie left the organization last season and signed a four year deal with the Marlins.
