May 13: White Sox (19-22) 0, Athletics (25-15) 11
The Oakland Athletics absolutely dominated the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday with 17 total hits and four hits allowed in an 11-0 shutout. Brandon Moss led the charge with a pair of homers and five RBIs.
Moss got the ball rolling for the A’s with an RBI double in the first inning. Craig Gentry added to Oakland’s slim lead with an run-scoring single in the fourth.
With starter Drew Pomeranz cruising on the mound through five innings, the A’s put the game out of hand with a four-spot in the bottom half of the fifth. Yoenis Cespedes and Derek Norris each doubled home runs capitalized by a two-run shot by Josh Reddick to make the game 6-0 in favor of the visiting team.
Pomeranz exited after five frames — having given up just three hits on 82 pitches — and passed the ball over to his more-than-capable bullpen.
The A’s padded their cushion with another three runs in the sixth and two tallies in the eight to finish the scoring at 11-0.
White Sox starter Scott Carroll surrendered six earned runs and 11 hits in his five frames of work.
Pomeranz, making his second start of the year, finished with eight strikeouts in the game.
