The New York Yankees won their second consecutive game against the Chicago White Sox on Friday evening, with a score of 10–4. Having scored 15 runs on Thursday night, the Yankees of now totaled 25 total in the past two games, showcasing elite offensive capabilities.

The Bombers haven’t only relied on their slugging, though, posting a total of 29 hits to provide contact support so their big bats can drive in runners in scoring position.

Good news for the Yankees:

In the win on Friday, Gerrit Cole earned the start, lasting 6.1 innings and giving up six hits and three earned runs. Cole absolutely dominated until the 4th inning when Cole balked, driving in Luis Robert at third base. However, it wasn’t until the 6th inning when designated hitter Gavin Sheets launched a homer to right field, driving in Robert and helping Chicago cut the deficit to four.

The Yankees’ offense has been far too potent to allow a measly comeback attempt to stifle their success. They recorded 14 total hits, four walks, and 10 RBIs. Aaron Judge recorded two hits and two walks with an RBI, elevating his batting average to .305. He has a team-best .661 slugging percentage this season.

Fellow slugger Giancarlo Stanton also contributed heavily, adding two hits and two RBIs to the Yankees’ offensive master-class. In fact, six Yankee batters recorded two hits, with Josh Donaldson also contributing three RBIs after smacking a two-run homer in the 9th inning to right field.

Currently, the Yankees have the best record in baseball and have maintained that pace over the past few days. They said 4.5 games above the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East and 2.5 above the Houston Astros in the entire league. The Yankees will face off against the White Sox on Saturday night at 7:10 PM in the third game of a four-game series. Jordan Montgomery will get the start, hosting a 2.90 ERA this season with a 48.3% ground ball rate and 3.69 xFIP.
