Chicago White Sox star Tim Anderson had the final say against the New York Yankees at the end of their controversial weekend series on Sunday night.
Anderson hit a three-run homerun from Yankees reliever Miguel Castro to squeeze the White Sox lead 5-0 in the eighth inning and completely ruin Luis Severino’s solid play. As he rounded the bases and was on his way to the home plate, Anderson was heard saying, “Tell them to shut up.” He also told Yankees fans to be quiet after the homerun. He was met by bunings when he went home.

Chicago won the match 5-0.
Severino was relieved in the eighth inning after keeping Chicago scoreless. The White Sox would hammer on the New York bullpen to win the game.
The All-Star shortstop was at the center of controversy on Saturday when he accused Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson of making a racist statement during their match.
Anderson, who is black, said Donaldson called him “Jackie” in reference to Jackie Robinson.
“He just made one, you know, disrespectful comment,” Anderson said told reporters. “Basically, it tried to call me Jackie Robinson. Like ‘What is it, Jackie?’ I do not play like that, I do not really play at all.
JOSH DONALDSON’S ‘JACKIE’ COMMENTS EXPLANATION ‘WAS COMPLETE BULLS-T’, WHITE SOX PITCHER SAYS
“I was not really going to disturb anyone today, but he made the comment, and you know it was disrespectful, and I do not think it was called for. Unnecessary.”
Donaldson, who is White, said he jokingly called Anderson “Jackie” earlier after a Sports Illustrated interview in 2019 where Anderson said he felt like “today’s Jackie Robinson”.
“My meaning of it is not just any term trying to be racist in any way,” Donaldson said. “Obviously he thought it was disrespectful … and look, if he did, I apologize. That was not what I was trying to do in any way and that was what happened.”
