The Yankees get crushed by the White Sox as Warren and Wade struggle

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Chicago White Sox on Friday night by the score of 14-7. The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx,NY. Adam Warren was making his major league debut and it showed as he got hit really hard. David Phelps ate up some innings in relief and will most likely now fill the spot of Warren going forward. Cory Wade got hit really hard and I would expect him to be sent down or released tonight or tomorrow. Andruw Jones and Nick Swisher led the Yankees offense. 
Warren pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up eight hits and six runs. He walked two batters and struck out one. Phelps took the loss, his third of the season pitching 3 1/3 innings and giving up four hits and two runs. He walked one and struck out five. Clay Rapada retired the only batter that he faced, Wade pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up seven hits and six runs with a walk and three strikeouts. DeWayne Wise faced two hitters and retired them both. Yes it isn’t a misprint Wise the outfielder did come in to pitch. Jose Quintana got the win, his third of the season. He pitched six innings giving up eight hits and six runs with three walks and five strikeouts. Matt Thornton pitched an inning giving up three hits and a run with a strikeout, Nate Jones pitched an inning giving up a walk and striking out two and Leyson Septimo made his major league debut pitching a 1-2-3 inning with two strikeouts.
