Braden Wins Second Straight Over Sox; Danks Gives Up Five Runs

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Kevin Kouzmanoff finished a triple shy of hitting for the cycle and Dallas Braden tossed a complete game to lead Oakland to a 6-2 victory over Chicago in the second installment of a three-game set.

Kouzmanoff went 3-for-5 and scored three times while Daric Barton added a pair of hits and drove in two runs to help the Athletics snap a two-game slide.

Braden (6-7) permitted eight hits, walked one and struck out five to win his second consecutive start — both against Chicago — after going nine straight turns without a win following his perfect game for Oakland, which snapped the White Sox’s 12-game home winning streak.

John Danks (11-8) suffered the loss after allowing five runs on seven hits while walking two and striking out eight in 6 2/3 innings for Chicago, which also had a five-game overall win streak halted.
