Konerko Pulls White Sox into Tie with A's
PHOENIX (AP) -- Paul Konerko hit a two-run single off reliever Pedro Figueroa with two outs in the top of the ninth inning to pull the Chicago White Sox even with the Oakland A's and the teams settled for a 4-4 tie on Friday night at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

The White Sox took a 2-0 lead against right-hander Jarrod Parker in the fifth inning on a run-scoring infield hit by Tyler Flowers and a single to right field by Gordon Beckham.

Oakland took a 4-2 lead with four runs in the sixth. Two of the runs were charged to left-handed starter Jose Quintana, the other two to reliever Ramon Troncoso.

Yoenis Cespedes drove in a run with a double, Derek Norris and Brandon Moss had RBI singles and the fourth run scored on a wild pitch by Troncoso.
