Eloy Jimenez hits two more home runs to power White Sox past Yankees

The Chicago White Sox are playing some good baseball on the South Side, taking the first two games of their four-game set against the New York Yankees with wins on Thursday and Friday. With the two wins, the White Sox have climbed back to the .500 mark, a pretty neat accomplishment for a team in the rebuilding stage.

A big reason for Chicago’s recent success has to do with their lineup including rookie outfielder Eloy Jimenez. The outfielder is on a tear and hit two more home runs against the Yankees on Friday night.

Here is the first three-run shot by Jimenez in the first inning off C.C. Sabathia:

And then he tagged a pitch from Luis Cessa in the bottom of the sixth for another three-run homer to give the White Sox a 10-1 lead:

Jimenez is now up to 11 home runs for the season and is really starting to heat up. The White Sox and Yankees will continue their series on Saturday at 6:10 on the South Side.
