White Sox 4, Yankees 1 • 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 visiting Chicago stopped New York's eight-game winning streak. It was Harper's second ho. Scherzer sacrificed Difo to second, and the runner scored on Adam Eaton's single up the middle.
Just in case, Harper and the Nationals made the point by putting on an offensive show at the Atlanta Braves' new park.
Harper drove in five runs. Ryan Zimmerman followed close behind with a 3 for 5 night with 4 RBI. Nationals SS Trea Turner (right hamstring) is nearly ready to return but is expected to require a rehab start in a warm climate, manager Dusty Baker said.
Chase d'Arnaud was up for the Braves with the bases loaded and two outs in the 9th, with his team trailing 3-1.
NY trailed 2-0 with two outs in the sixth before Bruce lined a three-run homer off frustrated starter Vince Velasquez. Also, five of his seven strikeouts came via that pitch. "I didn't have it at all".
We have been talking about the Braves and Suntrust Park for months-and in talking to Braves fans we learned not many could name the owners.

Meanwhile, we've already seen at least one hitter benefit from the shortened power alley in right center field. But it's a long season. He's already matched his career total at Turner Field - he had a grand total of one homer at The Ted previous year, and his first career dingeractually came in Atlanta - and even though Inciarte went into this season with nothing even approaching a power stroke, there's still something of a chance that with the way SunTrust Park plays, some of those balls that Inciarte pulls to right field could go over the fence and bounce their way into the Chop House.
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth left the game during a third-inning at-bat with a groin spasm. He appeared to suffer the injury on a check swing. As he walked back to the dugout, his pitch count at 101, manager Dusty Baker stuck out his arm in search of a fist-bump, essentially telling his starter: "Good job tonight".
The pertinent facts are that the right-hander went seven innings, did not allow a run, surrendered only two singles and pitched around three walks. Since then, his plate appearances have gone: intentional walk, walk, double, two-run home run, double, solo home run, single, walk, walk, single, walk, solo home run.
Braves OF Matt Kemp will test his right hamstring in a rehab game at Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, pushing back his return to the active roster. Inciarte jammed his left wrist when he fell in the outfield during batting practice but remained in the lineup. "And he said, 'Man, I've got 110 pitches or more in me, ' and I said, 'Well, you're at 103 right now, ' so he said, 'I promise you that I've got some more'". He's got three saves, but his ERA climbed to 7.11.
Atlanta'sFreddie Freeman walked in the first and hit his sixth homer in the third.
