CHICAGO - Lanky left-hander Chris Sale continued his quest toward his first 20-win season, striking out 11 and scattered six hits as the Chicago White Sox topped the visiting Oakland A's 7-3 on Sunday. In his third outing of 10 or more strikeouts this season, Sale (14-3) once again was nothing short of outstanding, giving up just two solo home runs while not allowing a walk to the A's (61-53). The White Sox, meanwhile, remained in first place in the American League Central, improving to 62-51. Sale gave up just three hits while striking out nine batters in the first five innings, while protecting a close 1-0 lead. In the first, Josh Reddick struck out swinging, but was able to reach base when Sale was charged with a wild pitch. But the next batter, Yoenis Cespedes, struck out swinging to end the inning. In the third, Cliff Pennington led off with a single, only to be subsequently erased when he was tagged out in a run down after leading off first base too far. ...

That was evident once again Monday night, as Chicago struggled to score runs in the 3-2, 11-inning loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. That meant Adam Dunn carrying the load with two solo homers, but having to play first base with Paul Konerko out. That meant catcher A.J. Pierzynski...
