OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Moss homered twice and Drew Pomeranz and three relievers combined on a four-hit shutout as the Oakland Athletics beat the Chicago White Sox 11-0 on Tuesday night for their sixth consecutive win.
Josh Reddick also homered and Yoenis Cespedes added two hits and scored twice to anchor a shuffled Oakland lineup that had catcher John Jaso batting leadoff for just the fourth time this season. Jaso had three hits and scored twice.
Pomeranz (3-1) went five shutout innings in his first start on May 7 and matched that with another stellar five-inning outing against Chicago. The Athletics’ left-hander struck out a career-high eight, walked two and gave up just three hits – all singles.
The White Sox lost their fourth straight.
