A's extend White Sox losing streak to five

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Josh Reddick's walk with the bases loaded against Hector Santiago lifted the Oakland A's to a 4-3 win against the White Sox on Saturday, extending the Sox losing streak to five games.

Santiago had escaped a bases loaded jam with no outs in the ninth by getting A's catcher Derek Norris to ground into a shortstop to home to first double play started by Alexei Ramirez. After pinch hitter Coco Crisp was walked intentionally, Eric Sogard struck out.

But the A's loaded the bases again in the 10th against the Sox lefty, who got Brandon Moss on a liner to second baseman Jeff Keppinger with one out and the bases loaded. Santiago (1-4) faced 11 batters and walked four -- two intentionally.

The A's had 16 hits against Sox pitchers. They left 18 runners on base.

The Sox had rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game in the seventh inning. A single by Jeff Keppinger, double by Hector Gimenez and a two-run single by Alejandro De Aza tied the score at 3. De Aza doubled and scored on a single by Adam Dunn in the third.

The A's nicked Sox starter Jose Quintana for three runs on Yeonis Cespedes' RBI double in the first, Chris Young's RBI single in the second and Nate Freiman's RBI triple in the fifth.

A single by Josh Donaldson, walk to Freiman and a bunt single by Josh Reddick loaded the bases against Santiago
