About Last Night: Yankees 15, White Sox 7

By Derek McAdam

May 14, 2022


The Yankees kicked off their four-game series against the Chicago White Sox with a 15-7 win. Here’s the recap.


Quick Stats: Luis Gil: 4 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Aaron Judge: 2-for-4, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 3 R

Giancarlo Stanton: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 3 R


Big Story: The Yankees got things going quickly with a two-run home run from GIancarlo Stanton in the 1st to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead, but the White Sox came back and took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the 2nd.


After an Anthony Rizzo triple, Stanton homered again to give the Yankees a 5-3 lead in the top of the 3rd, with D.J. LeMahieu doubling in Kyle Higashioka in the 4th to extend the lead to 6-3. The White Sox were able to get a run back in the bottom of the 4th, but Judge hit his league-leading 11th home run in the 7th to give the Yankees a 7-4 lead. In the bottom of the inning,


Yoan Moncada then hit his 1st home run of the season to tie the game at 7-7. (Obviously, the Yankees' pitching wasn't in shut-down mode.)


In the following inning, Judge hit a two-run single with the bases loaded to give the Yankees a 9-7 lead. Stanton then extended the Yankees’ lead to 11-7 with a two-run single of his own. Josh Donaldson followed up Stanton’s single with a three-run home run to give the Yankees a commanding 14-7 lead. Judge gave the Yankees an additional insurance run in the 9th with a sacrifice fly.


Player(s) of the Game: Aaron Judge gave the Yankees an incredible performance on the field with the hits to give the Yankees leads late in the game, but Giancarlo Stanton also deserves great praise for his night. Six RBIs will always constitute a great game.


Notable Performances: DJ LeMahieu, Josh Donaldson and Kyle Higashioka all had multi-hit nights, while Chad Green came in to finish the final two innings for the Yankees, allowing no runs.


Better to Forget: Aaron Hicks was 0-for-5 at the plate, but everyone has off-nights.


My Take: The Yankees were able to pull another win out of a hat, this time with the offense coming alive late in the game. So far, this has been my favorite Yankee game to watch this year. It was very wide open, which is exactly what I love to see and the Yankees are playing so well at the moment that even if there was a 10-run deficit, it wouldn't feel like an automatic loss. The team continues to find ways to win games and for the time being, that’s all that matters.


Next Up: The Yankees take on the White Sox in the 2nd game of a four-game series in Chicago tonight at 8:10 pm EST from Guaranteed Rate Field. Gerrit Cole is expected to take the mound for the Yankees, while Vince Velasquez is set to go for the White Sox.

Like water which seeks it's own level......Hicks is seeking his level 200 BA. Just think if we had a real CF & LF how good this team would be.

Jonathan Lousyguy looked lousy again and should have been listed on "Better to Forget." I'd send him down to get right in the head or mechanics or whatever. Right now, I'd rather see Wandy Peralta in a high-leverage situation.

No, I hate Joe Kelly. I'd never want him on my team. Seeing him eradicated like that last night did my heart good.

too many 'off-nights' for Hicks.

O'Neill spent a good deal of time explaining about how Hicks is screwing up his ability to hit well....and Hicks' .215 BA bears witness to it.

the OBP remains excellent, but it wont remain so if he fails to hit.

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
