    CHICAGO -- Jacoby Ellsburys towering drive kept going as Moses Sierra retreated in right field. Phil Dawson Jersey . Sierra made a leaping try as he reached the wall, but it was way over his outstretched glove. This time, the New York Yankees had the biggest swing on the South Side of Chicago. Ellsbury homered with two outs in the 10th inning, and the Yankees snapped an eight-game road losing streak against the White Sox with a 4-3 victory on Saturday. "I knew I hit it well," Ellsbury said. "I thought I might have hit it a little too high, but great feeling once it went out. Excited to get that win." The Yankees scored three times in the ninth against Ronald Belisario and then grabbed their first lead of the day when Ellsbury connected against Zach Putnam (2-1) for his second homer. Dellin Betances (3-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win and David Robertson finished for his 10th save in 11 chances, bouncing back nicely after yielding Adam Dunns game-ending homer in Chicagos 6-5 victory on Friday night. Adam Eaton singled and stole second with two down, but Robertson struck out Gordon Beckham to end the game. "Last night was a tough one. The team battled really hard, we got the lead and I wasnt able to nail it down," Robertson said. "They did the same thing today and I was not going to let them down today." John Danks pitched eight shutout innings for the White Sox, who had won four of five. Beckham and Eaton had three hits apiece. "Just trying to get the ball, go, throw strikes and let these guys work behind me," Danks said. "It worked out. They made some good plays on some balls that were well placed and caught some breaks. You need that in this game, especially against that team." Danks handed a 3-0 lead over to Belisario after his best start of the season. The right-hander yielded a one-out single to Ellsbury, but was in position for his third save when he struck out Mark Teixeira for the second out. Then it all fell apart in a hurry for the closer, who has allowed at least one run in each of his last three outings. Ellsbury took second on fielders indifference and scored on Alfonso Sorianos ground-rule double. Yangervis Solarte singled home Soriano and moved to second when Belisario walked Ichiro Suzuki. Pinch-hitter Brian McCann then completed the comeback with a bloop single into centre field, driving in Solarte with the tying run. Brendan Ryan grounded out to end the inning, and the crowd of 33,413 booed as Belisario made his way to the dugout. "Obviously huge at-bats to get us going," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We hadnt done much up to that point." Danks allowed three hits, struck out four and walked none. The left-hander was 1-4 with an 8.23 ERA in his previous five starts. Teixeiras ground-rule double in the fourth was New Yorks only hit before John Ryan Murphy and Ryan had consecutive two-out singles in the eighth. But Danks got Brett Gardner to fly out to right to end the inning. Vidal Nuno pitched seven-plus innings for New York in the longest start of the season for the converted reliever. He allowed nine hits, struck out five and walked one. The White Sox did all their damage against Nuno in the first. Eaton and Beckham started the inning with consecutive singles, and Dayan Viciedo then made it 1-0 with a double into the gap in left-centre. Dunn drove in Beckham with a sacrifice fly and Viciedo came home on Alexei Ramirezs groundout. "I was up in the zone the first inning, first half of the lineup and it was just making pitches," Nuno said. "It was a long game, guys came back and it was unbelievable how we came back and kept fighting." NOTES: Coming into the day, Danks was 2-3 with a 7.11 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees. ... Girardi said reliever Shawn Kelley (back) could play catch next week. ... Yankees captain Derek Jeter, who plans to retire after the season, passed former White Sox great Luis Aparicio for second in games played at shortstop with 2,584. ... Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (6-1, 2.39 ERA) takes on White Sox RHP Andre Rienzo (4-0, 4.00 ERA) in the series finale on Sunday. It will be Tanakas first game since he picked up his first major league loss on Tuesday against the Cubs. David Johnson Jersey . Louis against the Blues. The Canucks picked up their second straight victory in the swings opener on Tuesday in Calgary before getting routed in Minnesota last night, 5-1. Josh Bynes Jersey . Burkes Flames are one of several teams involved in heavy trade speculation going into next Wednesdays 3pm et deadline, with the most prominent name in play being forward Michael Cammalleri.LONDON -- New Zealand is one victory away from going through 2013 unbeaten after surviving a valiant fightback by England to win 30-22 at Twickenham on Saturday, erasing the pain of last years stunning loss in the same fixture. England overturned a 17-3 deficit after 17 minutes to take a 22-20 lead on the hour, but winger Julian Saveas second try of the match -- from a remarkable offload by Maa Nonu -- allowed New Zealand to recover for a 13th straight victory this year. The All Blacks head to Ireland next week looking to become the first team since South Africa in 1995 to finish a calendar year with a 100 per cent record. "We have given ourselves a chance, havent we?" New Zealand captain Richie McCaw said. "It would be pretty nice over December to sit back and reflect on that, but it isnt just going to happen by itself." Driven by memories of their 38-21 loss here 12 months ago, the All Blacks made a flying start through early tries by Savea and impressive No. 8 Kieran Read. But they lost No. 10 Dan Carter, who won his 100th international cap, to a right Achilles injury in the 26th minute and were soon worn down by the intensity of Englands dominant pack. Joe Launchbury crossed for Englands only try and flyhalf Owen Farrell kicked six from six, giving the hosts belief they could pull off a second straight win over the worlds top-ranked side and clinch a third successive November victory over Rugby Championship opponents. The All Blacks wrestled back the initiative, though, as Saveas 64th-minute try and Aaron Crudens late penalty saw them home. "Credit to New Zealand -- they are a champion side and they showed it in the end," England coach Stuart Lancaster said. "If you went into the England dressing room, we are desperately disappointed to have lost to a team that has been unbeaten all season." The All Blacks only defeat since August 2011 -- stretching back 34 games -- remains the reverse to England last year and their brilliant run of results has sparked a debate over whether they are the best team in world sports. Lancaster thinks so -- he said so this week -- but they were given a going-over by Englands forwards in the middle 40 minutes of the match, sending the All Blacks back in the collision and scrum and leaving New Zealand coach Steve Hansen shaking his head in the stands. "We mauledd New Zealand to death," England backs coach Andy Farrell said. Kareem Martin Jersey. Maybe it was just a coincidence, but the departure of Carter -- the worlds premier pivot of the past decade -- heralded the start of Englands renaissance. He became the fifth All Black to 100 caps, marking the occasion by wearing golden boots with "DC100" on them, and had kicked eight points by the time he hobbled off with an injury thats "been rumbling away for a while," according to Hansen. "He would have loved to have been out there for 80 minutes," McCaw said, "but hes got that milestone and got a bit of a smile on his face." It is a testament to the character of this young, bold England team -- missing six British Lions -- that they didnt wilt after Reads 15th international try, which was converted to make it 17-3 and made him the most prolific No. 8 in rugby history -- eclipsing the try record of compatriot Zinzan Brooke. It was also the fifth straight game in which he has scored. Read had also set up Saveas try inside two minutes, offloading deftly as he was being ushered into touch by three tacklers to allow the winger, who also scored two tries here last year, to romp clear untouched. Fourteen points down against the best team in the world, England made a statement of intent by turning down three kicks at goal to go for attacking lineouts. After the third lineout, Billy Vunipola was dragged over the line in a maul but the video referee couldnt see the ball grounded and ruled no try. From the resulting scrum, the ball was kicked forward by Englands pack but Read fumbled and Launchbury pounced to ground on the dive from close range. Carter went off, Cruden kicked a penalty but England was given cause for hope when Read was sin-binned in the 33rd after persistent team infringements. Farrell kicked three straight penalties, two while Read was off, and it needed something special for New Zealand to regain its foothold. Nonu provided it. After Charles Piutau was denied a try by a last-ditch tackle from Mike Brown, the All Blacks recycled to the left and Nonu offloaded brilliantly despite being tackled by England strongmen Ben Morgan and Courtney Lawes, and Savea ran through three opponents to ground. Crudens penalty in the 71st, giving him eight points for the match, ended Englands comeback hopes.
