The A's are trying to keep their winning ways rolling along. They visit the White Sox for a three-game series.
The Oakland Athletics made a big statement on their most recent homestand, most notably by wrapping it up with a series win against the Los Angeles Angels to take over as the second-place team in the American League West. The A's will try to keep that momentum rolling as they head to U.S. Cellular Field over the weekend to take on the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox are leading the American League Central by a slim half-game and have just lost two out of three to the Kansas City Royals. The A's will try to give them even more headaches over the next three days.
