Moncada helps White Sox beat A's 10-3
(CHICAGO) - White Sox manager Rick Renteria has been talking with Yoan Moncada about his focus lately. The talented second baseman sure looked locked in on Sunday. Moncada broke out of a slump with a three-run homer and six RBI, and the White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 10-3 for a split of their four-game series. Daniel Palka and Yolmer Sanchez also connected for the White Sox, who had lost nie of 10. Carlos Rodon (1-2) pitched a season-high eight innings in his fourth start after missing the beginning of the year while recovering from shoulder surgery last September. Palka, Sanchez and Moncada all went deep in the sixth. Moncada belted a three-run drive for his 10th homer, making it 10-2 Chicago. Oakland set a modern major league record when Mark Canha hit a drive to left on Rodon's first pitch of the fifth, extending the A's streak to 25 straight road games with a homer. A's right hander Paul Blackburn (1-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in five-plus innings. He permitted only one baserunner through the first four, but got into trouble with two out in the fifth.

Boston 5 – Seattle 0
Tampa Bay 7 – NY Yankees 6 (12 innings)
Minnesota 2 – Texas 0
Houston 11 – Kansas City 3
Toronto 7 – LA Angels 6 (10 innings)

Atlanta 7 – Baltimore 3
