Parker Outduels Sale As A’s Sweep White Sox

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Josh Donaldson’s sixth-inning sacrifice fly ended a career-best 28-inning scoreless streak by Chicago starter Chris Sale, and the Oakland Athletics beat the White Sox 2-0 on Sunday for a weekend sweep.

Jarrod Parker (4-6) hung tough in an impressive pitcher’s duel with Sale to win back-to-back starts for the first time this year. The right-hander matched his season high with seven strikeouts in 6 1-3 innings as Oakland won for the ninth time in 11 games.

Sale (5-3) lost for the first time in six starts since an April 18 defeat at Toronto. The White Sox (24-30) lost their season-high sixth in a row and matched a season-worst by falling to six games below .500.
