NEW YORK (AP) - For the last five years, Heath alum Daniel Webb has worked his way up the Chicago White Sox minor league organizations, and he saw his dream of playing in the big leagues come true on Wednesday night.
Webb took the mound in the seventh inning, with the White Sox already trailing 5-1. After walking Derek Jeter, and giving up a single to Robinson Cano, Webb got Alfonso Soriano to fly out to left. Webb ended up pitching one inning, allowing one hit, one walk, and one earned run.
Struggling ace CC Sabathia pitched effectively into the eighth inning before Mariano Rivera earned his first four-out save in more than two years, helping the New York Yankees hold off the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Wednesday night for a three-game sweep.
