Sizemore Has 3-Run Double in 9th for A's
CHICAGO (AP) -- Scott Sizemore hit a go-ahead three-run double in the ninth inning to rally the Oakland Athletics past the Chicago White Sox 7-5 Friday night, ending a 10-game losing streak.

Trailing 5-3 in the ninth, White Sox closer Sergio Santos (2-3) retired the first two batters and had Josh Willingham in an 0-2 count before walking him. Hideki Matsui followed with an RBI single to cut the White Sox lead to a run. Santos then walked Daric Barton and hit Kurt Suzuki with a breaking ball to load the bases. Sizemore then split the left-center gap to give the Athletics a 7-5 lead.

Santos allowed three runs in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

Grant Balfour (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the victory and Andrew Bailey pitched a perfect ninth for his first save of the season.
