NEW YORK, May 1 (UPI) -- A.J. Pierzynski stroked a late two-run double and Andruw Jones hit two homers Saturday to help the Chicago White Sox defeat the New York Yankees 7-6.

In the decisive top of the seventh, Yankees hurler David Robertson (0-2) allowed a one-out double to Paul Konerko, and after Carlos Quentin was intentionally walked, Pierzynski made him pay by lashing his third hit of the game.

Mark Kotsay added a two-run shot for the White Sox, who won for the first time in seven games at Yankee Stadium.

The win went to Scott Linebrink (1-0), who was credited with the decision despite yielding four runs in 1 1/3 innings. Bobby Jenks notched his fifth save of the year by posting a scoreless ninth.

New York was led by Nick Swisher, who powered a two-run homer, while Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez each added a pair of hits and an RBI.
