CHICAGO, June 13 (UPI) -- Joe Crede homered, drove in three runs and scored three times Sunday as the Chicago White Sox rolled to a 10-3 rout of the Atlanta Braves.
The White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen said earlier this week that he
would continue to give at-bats to Crede, who hit just over .200 in the first two months of the season. The 26-year-old third baseman has gone 3-for-7 with four walks and four RBI.
Crede reached base four times, hitting a two-run homer in the second inning and drawing a bases-loaded walk in the fifth. He also walked in the fourth and seventh innings, scoring on doubles by Juan Uribe and rookie Jamie Burke.
Frank Thomas homered for the fourth time in five games and Burke had three RBI to provide plenty of support for starter Mark Buehrle (7-1), who allowed three runs and eight hits in a season-high eight innings.
