New York Yankees 3 — Chicago White Sox 7   Former Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis hit a 5th inning grand slam in tonight’s 7-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox.   Ivan Nova struggled in his 6 innings of work. In his start tonight, 7 hits resulted in 6 runs on just 84 pitches. The big blow came in the 5th inning when Kevin Youkilis got to Nova for a go-ahead grand slam. Ivan Nova continues to be the victim of extra-base hits. In the 2nd inning, a leadoff triple would score on a sacrifice fly. In the 4th inning, Paul Konerko took Nova deep for a solo home run too, tying it at 2. Derek Lowe would follow Nova with 2 innings of work. Lowe would work in and out of two jams in his two innings of work. In the 7th, he got 2 outs with the bases loaded and didn’t allow a run to score. Then in the 8th, a leadoff triple spelled trouble but he kept them off the scoreboard for 2 outs but couldn’t get the last out before the run would score.   The Yankees offense got started off very hot. On the 1st pitch of the game, Derek Jeter took White Sox starter Francisco Liriano deep. The inning appeared to shape up into a very bad inning for Liriano as a single and two walks would load the bases loaded but the Yankees would just get one more run in the inning. Despite getting to Liriano and his pitch count early, the Yankees could not solve the left-hander beyond the first inning. Through 6 innings, he allowed just 2 runs on 6 hits with 7 strikeouts and 3 walks. Once he exited the game, Russell Martin took reliever Jesse Crain deep to leadoff the 7th inning. But the Yankees offense struggled behind Nova’s poor outing again.   Win – Frarncisco Liriano (5-10) Loss – Ivan Nova (11-7)   Notables Yankees *Derek Jeter – 1 for 5, R, Solo Home Run (12) in the 1st, RBI (42) *Russell Martin – 2 for 4, R, Solo Home Run (14) in the 7th, RBI (34) White Sox *Kevin Youkilis – 1 for 4, R, BB, Grand Slam (15) in the 5th, 4 RBI (47) *Paul Konerko – 2 for 4, R, Solo Home Run (21) in the 4th, RBI (58)   Current Yankees Record: 72-51
