NEW YORK -AP- 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.
Severino (1-1) was dominant for much of the night, throwing his fastball at up to 99 mph. He allowed just three hits in a career-high eight innings, struck out 10 and walked none. But two of the hits were homers, and three of the four runs off him were earned.
Leury Garcia reached down to drive a 96 mph pitch into the Yankees bullpen in the third for his first home run this season.
Chicago made it 4-0 in the seventh after Tim Anderson singled, just the second ball the White Sox hit out of the infield. Melky Cabrera hit a double-play ball to shortstop Pete Kozma, who allowed the grounder to glance off his glove for an error.
Cleanup hitter Jose Abreu, just 8 for 49 (.163) at the plate this year, popped up a bunt to the catcher, and Avisail Garcia sent a hanging slider into the visitors bullpen in left-center.
THIRD GARCIA
Willy Garcia hit a two-run homer for Charlotte against Pawtucket, a day after he was optioned to Chicago's Triple-A team.
BRONX CHEERS
Ex-Yankee Melky Cabrera was booed when he caught Greg Bird's fly to left ending the second inning. He made a motion to throw the ball into the seats, then stopped and ran back to Chicago's dugout.
