A's Big First Inning Dooms White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jack Cust hit a three-run homer and Mark Ellis followed with a solo shot, fueling a five-run first inning and leading the Oakland A's to an 11-3 victory Tuesday night over the Chicago White Sox.

Ryan Sweeney matched a career high with four hits, all singles, and added three runs and two RBIs. Oakland's No. 3 batters have combined to hit .218 this season but Sweeney, a one-time top White Sox prospect who went to Oakland in 2008's Nick Swisher trade, is at .348 in his last five starts there.

Brett Tomko (4-3) allowed three runs on six hits in 5 1-3 innings for the A's, who had 20 hits.

Five days after shutting out the crosstown Cubs for seven innings, White Sox starter Carlos Torres (1-1) recorded only two outs.
