NEW YORK (AP) -Chicago White Sox designated hitter left Thursday's game against the Yankees because of back spasms.
The left-handed slugger was lifted for pinch-hitter Scott Podsednik in the fifth inning and was day to day. He hit a two-run double in Chicago's eight-run second inning.
Thome, whose 38th birthday is later this month, has 489 career home runs. He's in his second season with Chicago, after three in Philadelphia and 12 in Cleveland.
