AMERICAN LEAGUE: ?Athletics 4, Rangers 0
Sonny Gray threw a three-hitter for his first career complete game and Oakland beat host Texas Monday night in Rangers ace Yu Darvish’s shortest outing in the major leagues. Gray (4-1) allowed only three singles and struck out six. Texas got only one runner to third base against the right-hander, who threw two wild pitches in the sixth after Robinson Chirinos singled. Darvish (1-1) was gone after 3? innings, pulled after walking No. 9 batter Eric Sogard for the second time. Those were the only two walks for the right-hander, who allowed four runs and six hits while throwing 83 pitches (45 strikes). Darvish is winless in his last nine home starts. Josh Donaldson had a two-run single in the third, and the A’s made it 4-0 an inning later when Josh Reddick had an RBI triple before coming home on Daric Barton’s sacrifice fly.
White Sox 7, Rays 3
Alejandro De Aza hit a two-run homer and Adam Eaton and Marcus Semien had two-run doubles, leading host Chicago to a comeback victory over Tampa Bay. White Sox slugger Jose Abreu, named American League co-player of the week earlier in the day, went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI, his 32nd. But it was the lesser trio that did most of the damage, driving in five of the seven runs. The White Sox (14-13) move above .500 by taking three of four from Tampa. It was Chicago’s third series win this season. Andre Rienzo (2-0) allowed five hits and three runs — two earned — in six innings to get the win. Jake Odorizzi (1-3) allowed eight hits and four runs in 4? innings to get the loss.
