|A's Edge White Sox on Bases-Loaded Walk in 10th
|OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Hector Santiago walked Josh Reddick with the bases loaded and two outs in the 10th inning to force in the winning run and lift the Oakland Athletics over the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on Saturday.
The A's had 16 hits and failed to score after loading the bases with no outs in the ninth before scoring the game-winner off Santiago (1-4).
Chris Young, who had two hits, started the rally with a one-out double. After Yoenis Cespedes was intentionally walked, Josh Donaldson drew a free pass from Santiago to load the bases. Brandon Moss then lined out to second before Reddick walked on five pitches.
Jed Lowrie matched his career high of four hits for the A's, who have won seven straight at home and 13 of 15 overall.
