    The White Sox have done something that hasn't happened in a generation -- sweep the Yankees.

    The South Siders rode out a strong pitching performance by Chris Sale to beat New York 2-1 Wednesday night -- their third win in three nights at The Cell.

    The Sox' runs came on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Youkilis in the third inning that scored Gordon Beckham and an Alex Rios homer in the bottom of the 6th.

    Derek Jeter had New York's lone run, a homer in the 6th inning.

    Despite the win, the Sox didn't increase their lead over the Tigers in the American League Central race as Detroit beat Toronto Wednesday.

    The last time the Sox swept the Yankees in a series was in 1991.

    Perhaps the New Yorkers shouldn't have went clubbing last night.
