Miguel Andujar had three hits and four RBIs in his major league debut, Aaron Judge added his major
league-leading 27th homer and the struggling New York Yankees pounded the Chicago White Sox 12-3 on Wednesday night.
Andujar made a good impression after being called up from Triple-A with Matt Holliday going on the disabled list because of an illness. He gave New York a 3-0 lead with a two-run single against Carlos Rodon in the first. He also singled in the third, walked in the eighth and drove in two more with a double in the ninth.
Judge's two-run drive capped a five-run sixth against reliever Jake Petricka, breaking open a 3-2 game. And New York came away with a lopsided win after dropping 11 of 14.
The White Sox lost for the eighth time in 10 games, with Rodon (0-1) struggling in his season debut and manager Rick Renteria getting ejected yet again.
Masahiro Tanaka (6-7) went six innings for his first win since May 8. The right-hander gave up two runs and six hits after going 0-6 in his previous eight starts.
