Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to put Chicago on the board first, his fourth blast of the year. Paul Konerko would make it back-to-back jacks for the Sox when he took A's starter Bartolo Colon deep for his third dinger of the year. The White Sox scored two more runs in the ninth on some poor Oakland defense.

Chicago pounded out 12 hits on the night, including three by embattled right fielder Alex Rios.
