The New York Yankees (36-26) host the Chicago White Sox (27-35) at Yankee Stadium on Thursday in a doubleheader with the visitors eyeing a sweep of the four-game series.

The White Sox lead the series 1-0 after winning 3-2 on Tuesday. Lucas Giolito threw six scoreless, no-hit innings – striking out seven – for the win, and Liam Hendriks earned his first save of the season.

Seby Zavala was 2 for 3 with two home runs and three RBIs in the win. Josh Donaldson went 1 for 3 with a solo home run for the Yankees.


Mike Clevinger (3-3, 4.13 ERA) is slated to get the start for Chicago in the first game of the doubleheader. The RHP threw five scoreless innings in his last start, a 3-0 road win over the Tigers on Friday. He gave up three hits while striking out six and walking one in the no-decision.

Righty Luis Severino (0-1, 5.28 ERA) gets the start for New York. It’s his first appearance of the season against the White Sox. Severino made one start against the White Sox in 2022, throwing seven innings in a 5-0 home defeat on May 22.

He gave up eight hits while striking out five in the no-decision. In his last start on Friday, Severino took the loss on the road against the Dodgers. He threw four innings and gave up seven runs on nine hits, striking out two and walking one in the 8-4 defeat.
