He belted a three-run bomb off of Jerry Blevins with a three-run homer into the second deck in left field in the fourth and then connected off of Craig Breslow for a solo  shot in the sixth inning, off the facing of the centerfield restaurant.

Paul Konerko White Sox (mlb)

Paul Konerko belted two homers and the White Sox avoided a three-game sweep by beating Texas in Arlington, 7-5.

Matt Garza Rays (Fresno State photo)

Indians get pounded by the Oakland Athletics

compiled from staff and wire reports

Justin Duchscherer wasn’t as sharp as he has been this season with his pitches. It didn’t really matter because his A’s teammates turned five double plays in the field.

Duchscherer and two relievers combined on a five-hitter, and Kurt Suzuki homered for the second consecutive day as the A’s beat the Cleveland Indians 10-0 Friday night.

Justin Duchscherer Oakland (mlb)

Duchscherer (2-0) battled command problems most of the game and walked a season-high four batters but earned his second win in his last three starts thanks to Oakland’s defense which bail him out of every jam. The five double plays were the most by the A’s since June 5, 2007 and one shy of the franchise record.

compiled from staff, wire and Nationwide Tour

When Jerry Rice left the golf course on Thursday at the Fresh Express Classic in Hayward, California, he had struggled putting on the greens and was 20 strokes out of the lead in his debut and shot a 12-over par-83.

“My putter let me down today. I could not get the speed of the greens. I don’t think I struck a really solid putt at all today,” he said.

The 47-year-old Rice is also the tournament host, birdied the par-5 seventh and also garnered eight pars but his round had five bogeys and four-double bogeys at TPC Stonebrae.

Jerry Rice (nfl)

Playing on a sponsor exemption, the former 49ers star was tied for 153rd with Brendon Todd in the 155-man field, two strokes ahead of last-place Brian Bateman.
