The day after appearing to snap out of their funk, the Yankees slipped again, losing to the White Sox, 3-2 [2]. The Yanks were now a game below .500 at 15-16, and they stood a disappointing 7 1/2 games behind the streaking Cleveland Indians (23-9) in the American League standings. DiMaggio was limited to a single in the second inning, but he had now hit in three consecutive games.
