CHICAGO – No matter what happens Saturday, the White Sox did accomplish something.

They snapped Yankees starter CC Sabathia’s streak of 16 consecutive “quality starts,” where he gave up three runs or less over six innings. The White Sox had five runs after four innings, getting two on a Paul Konerko home run and two on a home run from Andruw Jones.

Sabathia’s streak was the longest in the storied history of the Yankees franchise. Ron Guidry had the previous longest streak, recording 15 consecutive quality starts to start the 1978 season. He won the Cy Young Award that year.
