|Braden Shuts Down White Sox in A's Win
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Dallas Braden pitched his third complete game of the season, Kevin Kouzmanoff homered among his three hits and the Oakland Athletics ended the Chicago White Sox's 12-game home winning streak, 6-2 Saturday night.
Braden (6-7), who beat the White Sox on July 25 in Oakland to end his five-game skid and win for the first time since pitching a perfect game May 9, held the White Sox to two runs eight hits. He won consecutive starts for the first time since winning three straight from Aril 11-22. The left-hander struck out five and walked one in his third start since coming off the disabled list July 20.
Andruw Jones homered for the White Sox, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.
