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.
“[Pomeranz] was pounding the strike zone,” manager Robin Ventura said. We just couldn’t hit and we got outplayed all the way around.”
The Sox finish the series against the A’s on Wednesday afternoon.
