Sox' Only Runs On Castro Homer In Saturday Afternoon Defeat

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) – Kurt Suzuki had three hits, including a home run, to lead the Oakland Athletics in a 10-2 rout of the Chicago White Sox in the second of three games at Oakland Coliseum.

Suzuki, who signed a contract extension on Friday, scored twice and knocked in two runs for the Athletics, who have won eight of 10 and improved to 23-10 in day games this season. Jack Cust homered twice and walked three times, while Daric Barton had two hits and two RBI in the victory.

Vin Mazzaro (6-2) pitched six solid innings for the win, allowing two runs, three hits and three walks while fanning five.

Ramon Castro’s two-run homer provided Chicago’s lone offense, as the White Sox lost for the fifth time in eight games. Freddy Garcia (9-4) was blasted for five runs, six hits and three walks in just 1 1/3 frames to take the loss.
