NEW YORK (AP) _ Hiroki Kuroda tied a career high by striking out 11 and the New York Yankees backed him with three home runs, beating the White Sox 4-0 on Saturday and ending Chicago’s four-game winning streak.

A day after outfielder Dewayne Wise was perfect in his pro pitching debut during a mop-up role, he was perfect at the plate.

He had three hits and homered, with Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano also connecting.

Kuroda (8-7) pitched three-hit ball for seven innings.

Jake Peavy (6-5) struck out 11 in the loss.
