Nestor Cortes pitched a career-high eight innings and the New York Yankees took advantage of Michael Kopech's one wild stretch, beating the Chicago White Sox 5-1 on Sunday.

Clay Holmes finished the four-hitter for New York's 18th win in 21 games. The major league-leading Yankees took three of four in the series.
