White Sox 2, Athletics 6
White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko homered and DH Adam Dunn doubled twice for the Sox, but it was not enough as they fell to the Oakland Athletics 6-2 Saturday afternoon.
Gavin Floyd was pulled after five innings, allowing 5 runs and 9 hits. He pitched his shortest start since Sept. 24. Floyd is now 3-1 in 7 starts against Oakland.
Konerko's home run surpassed Rocky Colavito for 67th on the career home run list with 375.
The White Sox Will wrap up their series in Oakland this afternoon.
Cubs 0, Giants 3
Things aren't much better with the North Siders, but then again they didn't get enough time to muster any sort of rally. In six innings due to rain, the Chicago Cubs were shut out by the San Francisco Giants 3-0 Saturday night.
At a rainy Wrigley Field (the first Saturday night game played on the North Side since 2002), the game was delayed two pitches into the seventh and called after a 40-minute delay.
Doug Davis made his first start with the Cubs after being promoted from Triple-A Iowa. He pitched 5 innings, allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits, striking out 6 and walking 1.
The Cubs will also wrap up their series this afternoon before heading to Cincinnati.
