Joe Crede hit a run-scoring single in the ninth inning to hand Joba Chamberlain his first major league loss and give the White Sox a 7-6 win over the Yankees last night to avoid a three-game sweep. Bobby Jenks (1-0) got Jorge Posada to ground into an inning-ending double play in the ninth to get the win in a game twice delayed by rain.

Carlos Quentin doubled with one out off Chamberlain (1-1) and Crede lined a single to left-center to score him. Chamberlain, New York's hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander, had given up just three runs in 32 innings over 26 regular-season appearances since being called up last year. He had given up just one earned run in 19 outings in 2007. (Read more MLB stories.)
