|A's Beat White Sox
|OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Dallas Braden won for the first time in 10 starts since his perfect game May 9, ending a five-game losing streak during that span in the Oakland Athletics' 6-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
Kurt Suzuki drove in three runs two days after receiving a $16 million, four-year contract, and Daric Barton hit a two-run single in the second before Suzuki followed with one of his own. Suzuki added another RBI single in the fourth.
Paul Konerko gave Chicago an early lead on an RBI double with two outs in the first. After that, Braden (5-7) retired 13 of the next 14 White Sox hitters. This was the lefty's second start since coming off the disabled list July 20 following a bout with tightness in his throwing elbow.
