An RBI Hit by Robert in The Ninth

The Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees 3-2 on Saturday, as Luis Robert singled off Aroldis Chapman to drive in the winning run in the ninth inning.

The Yankees, who have the best record in the majors, had scored 25 runs in the first two games of the series. In the ninth inning, they rallied for the tying run, but a baserunning error cost them a chance to score more.

Tim Anderson singled and Yoán Moncada walked with one out in the ninth inning against Chapman (0-1). Robert then followed with a big hit to right, sparking a wild celebration on the field.

For the White Sox, who have won eight of their last 11, Moncada homered and Dallas Keuchel pitched five scoreless innings.

New York had won 19 of the previous 22 games.

Anderson had three hits, while Moncada and Robert each had two for the White Sox, who improved to 2-9 against the Yankees since June 15, 2019.

Each of the last two innings saw the Yankees score a run.

In the eighth inning, New York broke the shutout with 3 straight singles off Joe Kelly. To chase Kelly, Giancarlo Stanton‘s one-out single cut the lead to 2-1. To end the inning, Liam Hendriks (1-2) struck out Josh Donaldson and Gleyber Torres.

In the ninth inning, the Yankees put runners on third and second with no outs. Kyle Higashioka hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at two, but Isiah Kiner-Falefa was thrown out trying to advance to third.

Keuchel allowed 4 hits, struck out 3 batters, and walked three. In the fifth inning, the Yankees loaded the plate on a single and two walks against the left-hander before Anthony Rizzo grounded out to complete the inning.

For the Yankees, Stanton had three hits. He had homered in each of his previous three games.

Aaron Judge went 1 for 3 after hitting two home runs in the previous two games for the Yankees.

Jordan Montgomery pitched 4 1/3 innings for the Yankees, allowing two runs and six hits while striking out four and walking three. In each of his previous three starts, the left-hander allowed no more than two runs and no walks.

Nestor Cortes (1-1, 1.41 ERA) will take the mound for the Yankees on Sunday. He struck out 11 batters in seven innings of work against the Rangers.
