Sure, Sergio Santos got the save for the second straight day.
But it was right fielder Brent Lillibridge who closed out the Yankees for the White Sox on Tuesday, making a pair of game-saving catches with two on in a 3-2 game in the ninth.
With one out and runners on first and second, Alex Rodriguez delivered a hard fly to the wall in right that Lillibridge ran down. The utlityman saved the best for last, though, making a diving catch on Robinson Cano’s liner to end the game.
Lillibridge entered the game as a pinch-runner for Carlos Quentin in the seventh inning and remained in for defense. He may well have earned himself a start in Wednesday’s game, though it probably won’t be in right. He’s also acquitted himself quite well offensively in limited action this season. With a single in his lone plate appearance tonight, he’s now hitting .375 with a homer in 16 at-bats.
