NEW YORK -- Home runs by Robinson Cano and Eric Chavez against Gavin Floyd were more than the White Sox could overcome on Sunday. The two-run shots accounted for all of the Yankees runs in a 4-2 victory.
The Sox (42-37) settled for a series split after winning the first two games at Yankee Stadium on Thursday and Friday. They completed their road trip that started in Minnesota with a 4-3 record.
The Sox offense went silent against Phil Hughes (9-6) after Kevin Youkilis and Alex Rios hit RBI singles in the first. Chavez and Cano halted Gavin Floyd's mini-streak of two superb starts with their two-run homers in the second and third innings.
After Rios' double in the third, 19 of the final 21 Sox hitters were retired by Yankees pitching.
