Derek Jeter moves into 11th on all-time hit list, but White Sox slug their way to a 9-6 victory.

The Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees Monday night 9-6. Brett Myers picked up the win for Chicago, his second of the season, after pitching 0.2 scoreless innings in relief. For the Yankees, Boone Logan gets his second loss of 2012 after giving up two runs on two hits in 1.2 innings of relief. Both starters, Freddy Garcia and Gavin Floyd, exited early after being hit hard, but each managed a no-decision.

Derek Jeter's four-hit night put his career hit total at 3,255, passing Nap Lajoie and tying Eddie Murray for 12th all time. Willie Mays (3,283 hits) is Jeter's next target.

The Yankees got on the board first with two runs in the first inning behind an RBI single from Mark Teixeira and a run-scoring groundout from Eric Chavez. Curtis Granderson then added another run in the second inning with an RBI single to take an early 3-0 lead. The White Sox responded in a big way with a five-run fifth inning highlighted by a DeWayne Wise two-run homer, his sixth of the season.

The Yankees, led by Jeter's 11th home run of the season, scored three in the sixth to jump out in front 6-5 but were quickly answered by Chicago home runs from Gordon Beckham, Alexei Ramirez and Adam Dunn. After the offensive barrage, the White Sox led once again 9-6. For Dunn, the home run was his league-leading 36th long ball of the season.

Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up his 22nd save of the season.
