The Chicago White Sox (7-8) will look to climb to .500 in Cactus League play as they take on the Oakland Athletics (9-8) at Camelback Ranch this afternoon. First pitch is slated for 3:05 p.m. CT.

Southpaw Jose Quintana (0-1, 16.50 ERA) will look to rebound from his disappointing previous start against the Angels, when he allowed seven earned runs in just three innings of work. He will be opposed by Oakland right-hander Jesse Chavez (3-0, 0.00) – who has amassed 12 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings of spring work.

Today’s game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net and MLB Network, and an Oakland radio feed will be available on
