A's bounce back at home

Oakland took 3 out of 4 games at home against one of their division rivals, the Chicago White Sox.
Oakland now sits at a respectable 20-19 on the season, as they received strong pitching all weekend from starters Broberg, Wirth, and most notably, John Henry Johnson.  Johnson's 1-0, 3-hit shutout gem in game 2 of the Sunday doubleheader dropped his ERA on the season to a very tidy 2.04.  The A's played well in the series after returning home from a disappointing road trip, and their home record on the season is now up to an excellent 15-7.   Manager Bobby Winkles stated after Sunday's games that he's not exactly sure why his team is playing so much better at their home park, but said his pitchers seem to be liking that "good ol' Caifornia sunshine".
