Pinch hitter Paul Konerko hit a sacrifice fly off left-hander Sean Doolittle,
bringing Viciedo home to make it 5-4. Ramirez stole second base, but Doolittle struck
out pinch hitter Tyler Flowers and Leury Garcia to end the game and earn the save.
Danks entered the game with a 6-1 record and 2.12 ERA in nine career starts against
Oakland, but he took the loss. Danks (3-3) allowed three runs on six hits, including
Donaldson's home run, over six innings. He struck out five and walked two.
After Donaldson put the A's ahead 3-1 with his two-run blast in the fifth, shortstop
Jed Lowrie lined a two-run double in the seventh -- the 500th hit of his career -- off
reliever Daniel Webb, extending Oakland's lead to 5-1.
Viciedo gave the White Sox a 1-0 lead in the top of the second, hitting a solo home
run off Chavez with one out. Chavez fell behind 2-1, and Viciedo lined his 88 mph cutter
over the right-center-field wall.
The A's answered with a run in the bottom of the second when right fielder Josh
Reddick crushed an RBI triple high off the center-field fence with two outs. The triple
off Danks was Reddick's first extra-base hit and second RBI against a left-handed
pitcher this season.
The A's took a 3-1 lead in the fifth on Donaldson's two-run, two-out home run with
Reddick aboard after a leadoff walk. Danks fell behind 2-0, and Donaldson lined his 88
mph fastball over the left-field fence. It was his eighth home run of the season and
first since April 25 at Houston.
NOTES: Oakland CF Coco Crisp (strained neck) missed his fifth straight game Monday
night but took batting practice on the field, one day after hitting in the cage. Crisp
has not played since slamming into the right-field wall May 7 while making a catch in
the first game of a doubleheader against Seattle. His back made contact first, and then
his head whiplashed into the wall. ... White Sox LHP Chris Sale (flexor muscle strain in
