Paul Konerko also homered for Chicago, and Bobby Abreu and Josh Phelps connected for the Yankees in the makeup of Tuesday night's rainout at U.S. Cellular Field.
Pierzynski, moved into the No. 3 slot in the batting order of the White Sox' struggling offense, hit his sixth homer to put the White Sox ahead, 3-2. One out later, Jermaine Dye doubled, Rob Mackowiak was hit by a pitch and Joe Crede delivered an RBI single to finish Mussina (2-2).
