NEW YORK -- Miguel Gonzalez pitched shutout ball into the ninth inning to win a road start for the first time in two years, Leury Garcia and Avisail Garcia homered off Luis Severino, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Yankees 4-1 Tuesday night to stop New York's eight-game winning streak.
Gonzalez (2-0) allowed four hits -- all infield singles -- and one run in 8 1/3 innings, struck out four and walked one. He had been 0-7 in 19 road starts since a victory at Tampa Bay for Baltimore on July 25, 2015.
The right-hander, who threw just 88 pitches, retired his first 12 batters before Starlin Castro's infield single on a slow bouncer to shortstop leading off the fifth.
David Robertson relieved with a 4-0 lead and two on in the ninth. He loaded the bases with a walk to Jacoby Ellsbury, then struck out Matt Holliday. Robertson forced in a run with a walk to Castro, then got Aaron Judge to ground into a forceout for his fourth save, ending a game that breezed by in just 2 hours, 16 minutes.
On the 94th anniversary of the first game at original Yankee Stadium across 161st Street, the Yankees lost for the first time in eight home games this season (see full recap).
Scherzer pitches 7 scoreless innings, Nats beat Braves
ATLANTA -- Max Scherzer pitched two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings and the Washington Nationals handed Atlanta its first loss at SunTrust Park, escaping a major jam in the ninth to beat the Braves 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Atlanta scored a run against Nationals closer Brent Treinen and had the bases loaded with one out. But Shawn Kelley came on for his first save, getting Emilio Bonifacio to fly out to short right and striking out Chase d'Arnaud -- twice, actually -- to end the game.
D'Arnaud clearly missed a pitch in the dirt, but the umpires gave him a second chance by inexplicably ruling it a foul tip. D'Arnaud made it a moot point, swinging and missing again.
Scherzer (2-1) got an inning-ending double play to work around his only serious trouble in the fourth. The 2016 NL Cy Young Award winner allowed only one other runner as far as second base, finishing with seven strikeouts (see full recap).
Cubs beat Brewers to snap 4-game losing streak
CHICAGO -- Kyle Schwarber and Miguel Montero each hit a two-run homer, Albert Almora Jr. and Jon Jay added run-scoring hits in a four-run sixth inning and the Chicago Cubs rallied from five down in a 9-7 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Brewers slugger Eric Thames had two doubles and three hits but ended his franchise record-tying homer streak at five games.
Wade Davis got his third save and the bullpen retired 15 of its final 16 batters as the Cubs snapped a four-game skid.
The Brewers staked Jimmy Nelson to a 5-0 lead in the third, but the right-hander couldn't make it hold, allowing seven runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. Reliever Jared Hughes (1-1) took the loss.
Brett Anderson pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed six runs and eight hits. Justin Grimm (1-0) worked a scoreless sixth for the win (see full recap).
