Yankees blow two late leads in heartbreaking loss to White Sox, 6-5

Despite a solid 7.1 innings of three-run ball from CC Sabathia, the Yankees again lost to the White Sox last night in 12 innings, 6-5. With this loss, the Yankees have now lost 4 consecutive games to below .500 teams, lowering their overall record to an embarrassing, 57-56. 

This game started well for the Yankees, who had a 4-0 after the first 4 innings. Those 4 runs came on a two-run homer from Soriano, an RBI Single from Wells, and a solo homer from Nunez, his first of the season. After blowing that lead in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Yankees would retake the lead in the top of the twelfth, when Cano hit one over the wall. 

But in the bottom half of that twelfth inning, they would lose after Alejandro De Aza hit a walk-off, two-run triple off of Adam Warren. Yep, they actually managed to get swept this week.
