A-Rod goes 1-for-4 in return as White Sox roll Yankees
The Associated Press
CHICAGO — Alex Rodriguez
blooped a single in his first at-bat of the season hours after being
hit with a long suspension, but that was it for the embattled slugger as
the Chicago White Sox snapped a 10-game losing streak with an 8-1 win Monday night over the struggling New York Yankees.
Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 by Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis case, a punishment he is appealing.
That clearly was the biggest story on a day when New York's Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list because of a strained right calf and Andy Pettitte (7-9) got knocked out early. Alex Rios drove in four runs, Alexei Ramirez added four hits and Jose Quintana (6-3) pitched into the seventh for the White Sox.
