OAKLAND, Calif. – Jed Lowrie marked his 34th birthday with a go-ahead home run in a five-run first inning, Trevor Cahill pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut and the Oakland Athletics beat the Chicago White Sox 10-2 Tuesday night on the 50th anniversary of the A's first game at the Coliseum.

Stephen Piscotty and Jonathan Lucroy drove in three runs apiece, and Mark Canha added three hits and two RBIs. Oakland extended its winning streak to three with its first series win this season.

The game was played exactly 50 years after the A's debut at the Coliseum following their move from Kansas City, and it attracted a crowd of 46,028. Admission and parking were free, and players from both teams wore 1968 replica uniforms. The atmosphere was markedly different from a night earlier, when the announced attendance was 7,479 and the actual crowd appeared to be half that.

Cahill (1-0) signed in mid-March, made a pair of starts in the minor leagues and was brought up Tuesday for his first big league start since Aug. 9. He gave up five hits, struck out eight and walked two.

Now 30, the right-hander was a second-round draft pick of the A's in 2006 and spent his first three big league seasons in Oakland. He split time with Kansas City and San Diego last year and ended the season as a Royals reliever.

Yoan Moncada homered for Chicago, which has lost seven of eight.

Lowrie hit a two-out solo homer off Miguel Gonzalez (0-3), Lowrie's first home run in Oakland this season. He is batting .351 and leads the AL with 26 hits and 18 RBIs.

Canha hit a bases-loaded, two-run bloop single and Piscotty had a two-run double.

Lucroy added a two-run single in the fourth and an RBI single in the seventh.

Gonzalez gave up eight runs and eight hits in three innings, raising his ERA to 12.41.

TRAINER'S ROOM

White Sox: OF Ryan Cordell, acquired from Milwaukee last season for RHP Anthony Swarzak, fractured his right clavicle during a minor league game and will miss at least eight weeks.

Athletics: RHP Yusmeiro Petit was placed on the family medical emergency list. OF Trayce Thompson was designated for assignment, and RHP Lou Trivino was recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

UP NEXT

RHP Carson Fulmer (0-1, 4.66 ERA) is to take the mound for the White Sox in his first start at the Coliseum in the finale of this three-game series Wednesday. RHP Andrew Triggs (1-0, 2.87) goes for the A's.
