De Aza triple lifts White Sox past Yankees, 6-5

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Alejandro De Aza's two-run triple in the 12th rallied the Chicago White Sox to a 6-5 win over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, hours after New York's Alex Rodriguez appealed his suspension.

Rodriguez officially dug in for his fight two days after being hit with a 211-game punishment following MLB's investigation into Biogenesis of America, a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.

Then, the Yankees fell for the 14th time in 20 games after Mariano Rivera blew the lead in the ninth and Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead homer in the 12th.

The White Sox rallied with two out in the bottom half against Adam Warren (1-2).

Tyler Flowers singled off the pitcher's glove and moved to third on a single by Alexei Ramirez. De Aza followed with a hit to right-center, giving the White Sox their third straight win after a 10-game skid.
