CHICAGO (AP) - Josh Donaldson hit his first career grand slam, Josh Reddick made a homer-saving catch in the ninth inning, and the Oakland Athletics rallied from a three-run deficit Friday night for a 4-3 victory over Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox.
Donaldson's ninth home run of the season came in the sixth inning and helped Oakland right-hander Jarrod Parker (5-6) earn his fourth win in five decisions.
Reddick made a leaping catch to take away a home run from Chicago's Conor Gillaspie with one out in the ninth to preserve the win.
Sale (5-4) hadn't given up more than two earned runs since April 11, and he cruised out to a 3-0 lead through five innings in this one.
