Eduardo Nunez's two-run double capped a five-run eighth inning that rallied the New York Yankees past the Chicago White Sox 6-4 on Tuesday night for a crucial victory as they chase an AL playoff berth.
Derek Jeter got the Yankees started on a vintage comeback, and pinch hitter Curtis Granderson tied the score with an RBI single. New York, which began the day 2 1/2 games out of a wild-card spot, won for the 12th time in 14 home games to improve to 16-7 in its last 23 overall.
Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run triple and Alejandro De Aza homered to build a three-run lead for All-Star ace Chris Sale, but the last-place White Sox couldn't hold it. They dropped their fifth straight to start a 10-game trip against AL East contenders.
