Big day for A's rookies in win against White Sox

Sandy Vega | 26 June, 2017, 01:57

Oakland Athletics' Franklin Barreto (1) is hugged by Matt Olson after Olson's two-run home run off Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Jake Petricka, also scoring Adam Rosales, during the seventh inning of a baseball game.

The three players are the second set of three teammates to hit their first major league home runs in a game since the Kansas City Packers' John Potts, Duke Kenworthy and Art Kruger did so on April 26, 1914, according to STATS and SABR HR Log. "To see guys I've played with a little bit last year and this year, to see Barreto get his first hit and other guys get their first home runs it's really special for them and I'm glad I was part of it".

It started with a two-run homer from Olson in the first inning. He was making his second start since coming off the disabled list for a strained right lat.

Despite the rough start, Shield reached 2,000th career strikeouts. Santiago Casilla gave up a leadoff homer to Melky Cabrera in the ninth but earned his 13th save in 16 chances.

White Sox: Chicago opens a four-game series against the Yankees, with RHP David Holmberg (1-1, 2.84) starting for the White Sox and LHP Jordan Montgomery (5-4, 3.74) pitching for the Yankees. Gregory Infante, the third White Sox pitcher of the afternoon, then walked Joyce to bring home Barreto for an 8-2 lead. Oakland committed three errors.

He added a two-run homer in the seventh.

With a stockpile of young bats in the minors, the A's have recently called up top prospects Matt Olson, Franklin Barreto and Jaycob Brugman from Triple-A Nashville.

Pinder, 25, has started 39 games for the A's this season at five different positions (17 at shortstop, nine at second base, seven at designated hitter, five in right field and one in left field).

"Whether he's here for a period of time, I'm not sure about that", Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. Manager Rick Renteria said Rodon will possibly make his next start with the White Sox after throwing 93 pitches Friday in a rehab outing at Triple-A Charlotte. He has been ejected 10 times as a manager, including four times this season. He felt good, pain-free, we're very happy with that. He has been on the DL since May 1. "He's on track to come on back", Renteria said. He went on the DL May 27.
