Yankees Vs. White Sox: Kevin Youkilis's Grand Slam Helps White Sox Win Second Straight Over Yankees

Despite a leadoff home run from shortstop Derek Jeter — which moved him into sole possession of 11th place all-time in career hits — the New York Yankees were unable to hold an early two-run lead on Tuesday, dropping a second straight game to the Chicago White Sox, 7-3.

After Jeter's home run gave the Yankees a quick 1-0 lead, New York manufactured a second run in the opening inning, resulting in a Curtis Granderson fielders choice to score Nick Swisher.

After Paul Konerko tied the game in the fourth inning with a solo home run, it was Kevin Youkilis's grand slam to score Alexei Ramirez, Gordon Beckham and Dewayne Wise that broke the game open and provided the White Sox with a lead they would not relinquish.

The Yankees would tack on one run in the seventh inning courtesy of a Russell Martin solo homer run, however, it was too little to make up the deficit created by the grand slam.

The Yankees and White Sox return to U.S. Cellular Field Wednesday at 8 p.m. for the final game of the three-game set.
