Drew Pomeranz had a standard to live up to Tuesday, and he held up his end of the bargain. The left-hander threw five shutout innings in his second start of the season and the A’s beat the Chicago White Sox 11-0 to run their winning streak to six. They knocked out 17 hits and got a five-RBI night from Brandon Moss in one of their best all-around games of the season. And, worth noting, the love affair between A’s fans and Josh Reddick’s walk-up song continued. For the second straight night, Reddick walked to the plate to the mellow 80’s jam “Careless Whisper” by Wham!, and he enjoyed another good night at the plate. Reddick hit a two-run homer, singled and scored twice. Over two games, he is now 3 for 7 with two RBI and four runs while being serenaded by “Careless Whisper" as he strolls to the batter’s box. Pomeranz (3-1), the first-year Athletic who began the season as a long reliever but has assumed a starting spot after Dan Straily was optioned to Triple-A, is 2-0 in two starts and has not allowed a run over 10 innings. He’s struck out 13 and walked two.
Moss, A's blast past White Sox 11-0
