Olson, Brugman, Barreto hit 1st HRs, A's rout White Sox 10-2

Olson, Brugman, Barreto hit 1st HRs, A's rout White Sox 10-2

He fared little better this spring, slashing.281/.326/.428 with eight home runs and a.754 OPS through his first 309 PA in Nashville.

Barreto, a top prospect in the Oakland organization, was called up after shortstop Chad Pinder injured his hamstring Friday night and was placed on the 10-day disabled list. He joined Olson and Brugman in becoming the second trio of teammates to hit their first homers in the same game, the Elias Sports Bureau said.

"I started the season really well", Barreto said.

"These guys have fed off each other all the way through the system", said A's manager Bob Melvin.

After a rough big-league debut, Gossett improved in his second major-league start, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks with six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-1 setback Monday against Houston.

This is Olson's ninth game with the Athletics' major-league club.

White Sox pitcher James Shields is not happy after giving up a home run to Franklin Barreto.

Holland held Oakland to one run and four hits and exited to loud cheers with a 2-0 lead.

Athletics: Swept in a four-game series at home by the AL West-leading Astros last week, the Athletics will try to return the favor when they visit Houston for a three-game set that starts on Tuesday. Gossett, a former second-round pick, was 3-3 with a 3.41 ERA in 11 starts at Triple-A Nashville before his promotion.

Oakland grabbed a 3-2 lead in the eighth on RBI singles by Khris Davis and Alonso against Tommy Kahnle (0-2) and Robertson. The lefty pitched two no-hitters for the White Sox, including a ideal game, and helped them win the 2005 World Series. He felt good throwing Saturday, Renteria said.

The moves were made before the middle game of the three-game series between Oakland and Chicago.

Carter hit 41 home runs with 84 RBIs for the Brewers last season. "He's on track to come on back", Renteria said. Melvin has used Pinder as his go-to utility man, putting him in the lineup at four different positions - 17 at shortstop, nine at second base, five in right field and one in left field - in addition to seven starts as the designated hitter. He is 1-0 with a 5.29 ERA in three career starts against Chicago.
