White Sox Clobber Punchless A's

In a game heard on WHOW, Yoan Moncada went 5 for 6 with two home runs and five RBIs, Dylan Cease stuck out nine in six scoreless innings and the Chicago White Sox hammered the Oakland Athletics 14-2 on Thursday night.


Chicago had 21 hits, including 10 extra-base hits, in its highest-scoring game of the season. It has won seven of its last nine games.


Romy Gonzalez went 4 for 5 with a homer and three RBIs. Elvis Andrus, released by the A's in August, and Eloy Jimenez also homered.


Cease (14-6) reached 206 strikeouts for the year, becoming the seventh White Sox pitcher with multiple 200-strikeout seasons. The right-hander allowed three hits and two walks after coming within one out of a no-hitter in his last start against the Minnesota Twins.


Miguel Cairo improved to 7-3 as acting manager as Tony La Russa remains away from the team with an unspecified health issue.


White Sox OF Luis Robert missed his second straight game after getting hit on his left fingers during a swing on Tuesday in Seattle. He is also dealing with a sore left wrist.


Lucas Giolito (10-9, 5.21 ERA) makes his third career start against Oakland on Friday. Giolito is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA in his two previous outings. Athletics RHP James Kaprielian (3-9, 4.79) looks to snap a four-game losing streak. He beat the White Sox on July 29, allowing one run in six innings.
