White Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale (right) hands the ball to manager Robin Ventura (23) while leaving an exhibition training game against Oakland in the sixth inning on Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Chris Sale had his worst start of spring training, giving up five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings, but a White Sox split squad roughed up Jarrod Parker and Oakland in a win.

A day after amassing 15 hits, the Sox banged out 17 more in the romp.

A’s cleanup hitter Josh Donaldson hit his first homer of spring training that counted – he had two taken away in a rained out game against Seattle on March 8.

Outfielder Jordan Danks, a long shot to make the Sox as a bench player, had a single, double and two RBIs a day after hitting a home run and driving in five runs.
