Jon Berti hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fourth inning and Aaron Judge followed with a two-run home run in the fifth as the host New York Yankees extended their winning streak to a season-high seven games with a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday afternoon.

The Yankees are on their longest winning streak since also winning seven in a row Sept. 18-25, 2022 and they are 13-2 in their past 15 games. New York also completed its fourth series sweep of the season.

Jose Trevino added a two-run single in the second as the Yankees erased an early two-run deficit.

Berti snapped a 2-2 tie by lining a pitch from Chicago starter Chris Flexen (2-4) into the first row of the right-center field seats adjacent to New York's bullpen. The 366-foot drive was the infielder's first homer since being acquired from the Miami Marlins at the end of spring training.

Following a walk to Juan Soto, Judge put the Yankees ahead 7-2 when he lined a pitch down the right field line for a 339-foot homer. The ball went into the first row and caromed back onto the field.

It was Judge's 13th homer of the season and seventh in his past 13 games.

Former Chicago starter Carlos Rodon (5-2) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings. The left-hander struck out six, walked two and won his third straight start.

Michael Tonkin put two on in the ninth before Clay Holmes easily got the final two outs.

Corey Julks homered and Zach Remillard hit an RBI triple in the second off Rodon. Remillard ended the inning when Trevino picked him off at third base and the Yankees tied the game when Trevino lined a single to left in the bottom of the second.

The White Sox were swept for the eighth time and held to two runs or fewer for the 24th time.

Flexen was tagged for a season-high seven runs on eight hits in four-plus innings. He struck out four and walked one.
