    Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman combined for scoreless relief and struck out eight as the New York Yankees used their three big bullpen arms in the same game for the first time Saturday to secure a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

    Ivan Nova pitched neatly into the sixth inning to give New York's ailing rotation a much-needed boost. Aaron Hicks hit an RBI double and Didi Gregorius added a run-scoring single with two outs in the second.

    That was enough to squeeze past the stingy White Sox (24-13), who began the day with the best record and lowest ERA (3.13) in the American League. Todd Frazier hit his 12th home run for Chicago, which has lost three of four overall - and 11 of the past 14 matchups with New York.

    Jose Quintana (5-2) pitched seven strong innings in a hard-luck loss. The left-hander, let go by the Yankees when he was in the low minors, entered leading the AL with a 1.38 ERA.
