Yankees At White Sox Preview: Game Time, TV, Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees will be trying to avoid being swept in the third and final game of their series against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

Ivan Nova was smacked around the ballpark on Tuesday after being staked to a 2-0 lead, giving up a home run to Paul Konerko and a grand slam to Kevin Youkilis.

Now it will be Phil Hughes' turn to try and turn the momentum around for the Bronx Bombers. The right-hander has been inconsistent this year with a 12-10 record and 4.23 ERA. However, he was terrific in his last start, throwing seven shutout innings to defeat the Boston Red Sox.

Hughes will be opposed by Chicago's ace, Chris Sale. The 23-year-old has been nothing short of sensational for the Sox, compiling 14 wins and a 2.72 ERA. After coming out of the bullpen last season, Sale has turned into one of the better starters in the American League.

This will be Sale's first start against the Yankees, while Hughes pitched against Chicago back on July 1 when he surrendered only two runs in eight innings to earn a victory.
