White Sox ace Chris Sale hit hard in 11-5 loss to Athletics
GLENDALE, Ariz. – Chris Sale had his worst start of spring training, giving up five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings, but a Chicago White Sox split squad roughed up Jarrod Parker and the Oakland Athletics in an 11-5 win Saturday.
A day after amassing 15 hits, the White Sox banged out 17 more in the romp.
A's cleanup hitter Josh Donaldson hit his first homer of spring training that counted — he had two taken away in a rained out game against Seattle on March 8.
Outfielder Jordan Danks, a long shot to make the White Sox as a bench player, had a single, double and two RBIs a day after hitting a home run and driving in five runs.
