CHICAGO (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton homered in his third consecutive game, Aaron Judge went deep for the second time in two nights and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 10-4 on Friday night.

After connecting twice and driving in a career-high six runs in Thursday’s 15-7 win, Stanton smacked a two-run drive Friday in the first inning against Vince Velasquez (2-3). That propelled the Yankees to their 19th win in 22 games.

Judge made it 6-0 when he hit a solo drive in the fourth for his major league-leading 12th home run.

Josh Donaldson also homered in his second straight game and drove in three runs, and Joey Gallo went deep, too.

Gerrit Cole (3-0) lasted 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and six hits. The right-hander struck out nine and walked one, helping New York improve to a major league-best 24-8.

The White Sox lost for the third time in four games. The reigning AL Central champions have been outscored 41-21 in that span by Cleveland and New York.

Gavin Sheets homered, and Luis Robert had two hits and scored twice. Velasquez got tagged for seven runs and eight hits in five innings.

After setting season highs with 15 runs and 15 hits, the relentless Yankees grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first on a drive by Stanton that just cleared the center-field wall. The home run was his fourth in three games and 10th this season.

Things got heated in the bottom half when, with the bases loaded, catcher Jose Trevino tried to pick Tim Anderson off third after Sheets struck out.

Donaldson appeared to knee and push the diving runner while applying the tag. Anderson responded with a push, and the two had words, leading to both teams’ benches and bullpens emptying. The umpires quickly restored order, and Cole struck out AJ Pollock to end that threat.

New York scored three more in the second, capped by Donaldson’s RBI double.

ROSTER MOVE

The Yankees recalled right-hander Clarke Schmidt from Triple-A Scranton/Wilks-Barre before the game.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Yankees: C Ben Rortvedt (right oblique) will likely have an MRI after a knee problem put his rehab on pause, manager Aaron Boone said. Acquired from Minnesota along with Josh Donaldson and Isiah Kiner-Falefa in March as part of the deal that sent Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela to the Twins, Rortvedt has played in just two minor-league games this season.

White Sox: Chicago placed ace Lucas Giolito on the COVID-19 injured list. Giolito began experiencing mild symptoms Wednesday, and the White Sox hope to have him pitch during their series at Kansas City next week. … OF Andrew Vaughn was activated following a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte after being sidelined because of a bruised right hand.

UP NEXT

LHP Jordan Montgomery (0-1, 2.90 ERA) looks to keep his string of solid outings going for New York, while LHP Dallas Keuchel (2-3, 6.86) eyes his second straight win.
