PHOENIX (AP) — Josh Donaldson hit his first home run of the spring and the Oakland Athletics tied the Chicago White Sox 2-2 in a game stopped after nine innings Sunday.

Dan Straily and three Oakland relievers held the White Sox to three hits.

Straily went 3 1-3 innings, walking three and striking out two. He gave up two hits — one was Matt Davidson's deep fly to left that Yoenis Cespedes misjudged. Cespedes came in on the ball but it landed well behind him and bounced over the wall for a ground-rule double.

Cespedes' woes weren't over. He struck out three times, and in the sixth he was charged with a three-base error for failing to catch Gordon Beckham's fly to the warning track in left-center. That led to Chicago's first run.
