Yankees 6, White Sox 0 (6 1/2 innings): Mercy rule

An impending storm delayed tonight's game by 45 minutes. It never delivered, but another one cut this game off six innings.

Between the tarpings, White Sox fans were treated to another night of uninspiring baseball.

This time, it was the red-hot John Danks getting smacked around the park while the ice-cold Phil Hughes rebounded with an abbreviated shutout. At this rate, Paul Konerko could hold out for more money.

The details of this game are quite inconsequential, but the Yankees showed how they improved to a league-best 23-9 against left-handed pitchers. Robinson Cano roped an RBI double in the first, Russell Martin crushed a solo shot to left in the second, and Mark Teixeira took him deep to left to make it 4-0 after three.

The White Sox, on the other hand, couldn't even get a runner into scoring position. In fact, they only saw 65 pitches over six innings; the Yankees saw 152 over seven.

At least those on hand were treated to history when Teixeira took Jason Frasor deep in the seventh. It marked the 12th time that Teixeira homered from both sides of the plate in the same game, and that's an MLB record.

Record: 52-56 | Box score | Play-by-play
