OAKLAND, Calif. — Brandon Moss hit two home runs, Josh Reddick also went deep and the Oakland A’s had an easy time with Scott Carroll and the visiting White Sox in their 11-0 victory on Tuesday night.
The loss was the second in as many games on the first leg of a nine-game road trip for the Sox (19-22), who have lost four in a row. A’s pitchers held the Sox to four singles.
Carroll (1-3, 5.24) got roughed up for 11 hits and six runs over five innings. It was the second bad outing for the 29-year-old minor-league lifer after two good starts. The A’s got three of their four doubles against him in the four-run fifth, which also included a Reddick homer. Brandon Moss homered against Frank Francisco and Matt Lindstrom.
A’s lefty Drew Pomeranz (3-1, 1.14 ERA) threw five easy innings for the A’s, allowing three harmless singles.
The Sox finish the series against the A’s on Wednesday afternoon.
