Chicago won the game 5-0.

Severino was relieved in the eighth inning after holding Chicago scoreless. The White Sox would hammer New York’s bullpen to win the game.

The All-Star shortstop was at the center of controversy on Saturday when he accused Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson of making a racist remark during their game.

Anderson, quien es negro, said Donaldson called him “Jackie” in reference to Jackie Robinson.

He just made a, sabes, disrespectful comment,” Anderson dijo a los reporteros. “Básicamente, it was trying to call me Jackie Robinson. Me gusta, 'Que pasa, Jackie?’ I don’t play like that. I don’t really play at all.

JOSH DONALDSON’S ‘JACKIEREMARK EXPLANATION ‘WAS PLETE BULLS—T,’ WHITE SOX PITCHER SAYS

I wasn’t really going to bother nobody today, but he made the comment, and you know it was disrespectful, and I don’t think it was called for. Unnecessary.

Donaldson, quien es blanco, said he jokingly called Anderson “Jackie” in the past following a 2019 Sports Illustrated interview in which Anderson said he felt liketoday’s Jackie Robinson.

My meaning of that is not any term trying to be racist by any fact of the matter,” Donaldson said. “Obviamente, he deemed it disrespectful … and look, if he did, I apologize. That’s not what I was trying to do by any manner and that’s what happened.
