Pregame concerns: Yankees called up INF Chris Basak and LHP Sean Henn and demoted OF Kevin Thompson and RHP Matt DeSalvo. ... Clippard has never faced the White Sox. ... Buehrle is 1-4 with a 6.42 ERA over 6 starts and 33 2-3 innings pitched against the Yankees in his career. ...

Game updates:

9:01 p.m.: The Yankees have grounded into three double plays.

9:08 p.m.: On a ground ball to Jeter, Dye advances to second, and then takes third because no one was covering. Here we go again. Runner at third, one out.

9:14 p.m.: Mackowiak hits an RBI single. 1-0 White Sox going to the top of the fifth.

9:20 p.m.: Cano has been very hot lately. Abreu and he are finally starting to hit. Too bad Jeter is slumping.

9:23 p.m.: Oh wow, Cairo hits a clutch two-out RBI single to tie the game.

9:43 p.m.: After a Damon leadoff double, Jeter bunted for a single. Abreu hits an RBI single, and Jeter goes to third. 2-1 Yankees, runners at first and third, no out. By the way, I love the booth with Paul O'Neill and Joe Girardi, even though Michael Kay is still there.

9:48 p.m.: Rodriguez doubles to center, scoring Jeter. 3-1 Yankees. Posada hits a sacrifice fly to right field. Dye almost threw Abreu out. 4-1 now.

9:50 p.m.: Matsui singles home Rodriguez. An offensive explosion!

9:56 p.m.: Joe "Quick Hook" Torre has taken out Clippard. Scott Proctor is in now. Bottom of the sixth, 5-1 Yankees.

9:58 p.m.: Cairo is having a great game at first base tonight. I say, keep starting him. He can't be as bad as Phelps at the plate, and he's already proving himself worthy in the field.

10:04 p.m.: Damon has three hits tonight, and Jeter has two. The Yankees have second and third with one out in the top of the seventh.

10:06 p.m.: Damon was caught in a rundown between third and home. Great. Rodriguez hits an opposite bloop for a single, scoring Jeter. 6-1.

10:43 p.m.: Kyle Farnsworth has loaded the bases with one out in the eighth. He's a loser.

10:49 p.m.: He gets out of it only allowing one run. Going to the top of the ninth, 6-2 Yankees.

10:56 p.m.: Rodriguez just hit a ball more than half-way up the bleachers at U.S. Cellular. 7-2 Yankees.

11:12 p.m.: Brian Bruney loads the bases with one out, and now Mariano Rivera has to come in.

11:19 p.m.: Rivera closes the door, giving up a sacrifice fly in the process. Yankees win 7-3.
