CHICAGO (AP) - Jason Giambi hit a three-run homer and Brett Anderson pitched seven impressive innings, sending the Oakland Athletics to a 7-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.
Aaron Cunningham added a two-run shot in the ninth for Oakland, which won the final three games of the four-game series.
With top prospect Gordon Beckham making his major league debut at third base, the White Sox were shut out for the major league-worst eighth time this season, twice with Mark Buehrle on the mound.
Beckham went 0 for 3 with a strikeout. He hit into a fielder's choice in his first at-bat.
