In the season's first 50 games the A's had only hit 39 home runs, so when Oakland hit 3 homers in one game it's considered a big deal. The A's entered the 4th inning in a 2-2 tie, but two pitches later the score was 4-2 because Bobby Crosby and Landon Powell hit back to back bombs on back to back pitches. Jason Giambi would add a solo shot of his own in the 5th and Oakland held on for a 5-3 victory against the White Sox.
Josh Outman had another solid outing with 6 2/3 innings pitched allowing 2 earned runs while striking out 3. Outman improved to a perfect 3-0 on the season whith the help of fellow rookie Andrew Bailey who closed out Chicago and picked up his third save of the season.
The A's will look to win the series on Thursday when they send rookie Brett Anderson to the mound against White Sox starter Mark Buehrle.
