The Yankees Ruined Severino’s Excellent Start

Tim Anderson said it all with one stroke of the bat and a powerful trot around the bases.

Anderson hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning and then put his finger to his lips to silence the fans who were booing and chanting “Jackie” at him and White Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-0 Sunday to complete a doubleheader sweep.

Anderson was booed during the nightcap’s pregame introductions and before each at-bat. In the second game, Michael Kopech said he noticed fans chanting “Jackie” at Anderson.

Anderson had already singled twice when he homered with two outs to finish off a five-run inning.

Anderson rounded the bases at a slow trot, his hands to his lips in a shushing gesture. When he crossed home plate, he clapped his hands several times and pointed skyward before making another silencing motion.

Donaldson did not speak with reporters either. Donaldson stated through a Yankees spokesman that he had not spoken with Major League Baseball about the situation and did not speak with Anderson on Sunday.

Kopech returned to work on Friday after taking paternity leave to attend the birth of his second child. He struck out the first 17 batters before being replaced by Rob Brantly in the sixth.

Over seven innings, Kopech (1-1) allowed just one hit and 2 walks while striking out six.

Luis Severino pitched seven scoreless innings, scattering eight hits. Jonathan Loaisiga (1-2) was defeated in relief.

Donaldson sat out the game’s finale after going 0 for 4. In the eighth, with two on and one out, he flied out to the track in right-center.

Aaron Judge’s eighth-inning homer off Graveman (1-1) cost Johnny Cueto the opener. In his second major league appearance of the season, the 36-year-old righty allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out five.

Yankees starter Jameson Taillon pitched a season-high seven innings, allowing one run on five hits. Chapman (0-2) took the loss.
