OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jesse Chavez struck out seven and came up an inning short of his first career complete game as the Oakland Athletics held on to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Monday night for their season-high fifth straight win.
Chavez (3-1) gave up five hits and walked two. He allowed only solo home runs to Dayan Viciedo and Jose Abreu, whose major-league leading 14th long ball in the ninth chased the right-hander.
Josh Donaldson hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the fifth, and Josh Reddick hit a tying triple in the second off John Danks (3-3) during Oakland's win. Jed Lowrie added a two-run double in the seventh that proved pivotal after the White Sox scored three runs in the ninth.
Left-hander Sean Doolittle recorded the final three outs for his second save.
