Chicago White Sox 7 – Oakland Athletics 2
Highlights: Carlos Rodon‘s much-delayed first win of the season nearly got derailed in the second inning when the White Sox pitcher stumbled in his delivery and appeared to twist an ankle. Rodon settled in and delivered the type of performance White Sox management had been hopeful of the past three months while the left-hander was on the disabled list recovering from bursitis in his bicep. Todd Frazier doubled twice and drove in two runs and Chicago beat the slumping Oakland Athletics 7-2 on Monday night. Melky Cabrera added three hits and an RBI, Willy Garcia doubled twice while Matt Davidson had an RBI double to break out of a personal slump and help Chicago to its fifth win in seven games. Rodon (1-1) allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings and came within one shy of his career high with 10 strikeouts in his second start.
