CHICAGO (AP) - Melky Cabrera and Alexei Ramirez homered and John Danks struck out eight as the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 8-2 on Saturday night.
Danks (6-8) held the Yankees to a run and three hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked four but his eight strikeouts matched a season high.
Brian McCann hit his 17th homer for the AL East-leading Yankees, who could muster only five hits.
Tyler Saladino hit an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth to give the White Sox a two-run lead and knock Bryan Mitchell (0-1) out of the game. Diego Moreno replaced Mitchell and hit Jose Abreu with a pitch before he allowed Cabrera's three-run homer.
Ramirez added his solo home run for the surging White Sox, who have won eight of 10.
