As the newest crop of “Baby A’s” were being hatched by Beane, Kubota, and others, the A’s faced the same team they faced last weekend, the Chicago White Sox. Dan Straily would face a team in back-to-back starts for the first time in his career, and turned in an okay start. Over 7 innings, the 4th consecutive start in which an A’s starter reached that point in the game, he allowed 6 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 3. Of the 4 runs he allowed, 3 were with two outs in the 3rd inning. Meanwhile, White Sox starter Jose Quintana also allowed 4 runs, but allowed them in spurts; specifically, he allowed 3 solo HRs of the bats of Yoenis Cespedes (twice) and Josh Reddick. Here’s how everyone scored.
