White Sox win back-and-forth affair with Yankees

Andruw Jones hit two more home runs off a shaky Javier Vazquez, A.J. Pierzynski boomed a go-ahead double and the Chicago White Sox seesawed past the New York Yankees 7-6 Saturday.

The Yankees' three-game winning streak ended, and they also lost center fielder Curtis Granderson. He strained his left groin while dashing on a hit-and-run single, badly hobbled into third and went to a hospital for an MRI exam.

Mark Kotsay homered to give Chicago a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning, prompting Vazquez to get booed off the mound. Unbeaten White Sox starter John Danks left after five innings, and Nick Swisher's homer capped a four-run comeback in the sixth that put the Yankees ahead 6-5.

The White Sox rallied in the seventh. Paul Konerko doubled with one out and Carlos Quentin drew an intentional walk from David Robertson (0-2) with two outs. Damaso Marte relieved and Pierzynski met him with a double to deep left-center.
