Roy Oswalt gave up three homers on Tuesday night - in the first inning.
The White Sox' Kevin Youkilis and Adam Dunn hit back-to-back shots, and one out later Alex Rios connected off the Texas righthander.
Oswalt must have thought he still pitched for the Phillies.
Jones gets Game
Chipper Jones, everybody's sentimental choice to make one final All-Star Game appearance before he retries, was named to the NL team for the eighth time.
Jones will replace Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who will miss the game with a strained hamstring, although he will take part in the Home Run Derby.
The men in blue
Gerry Davis, who worked the plate for the infamous 7-7, 11-inning tie at Milwaukee in 2002, will be the home plate umpire for Tuesday's All-Star Game.
He'll be joined by Jim Joyce (first), Brian Runge (second), Tony Randazzo (third), Lance Barksdale (left), and Brian Knight (right).
Around the bigs
Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka was placed on the 15-day disabled list (stiff neck) a day after the righthander allowed five runs and failed to retire a batter in the second inning of a 6-1 loss to Oakland.
Boston also reached a settlement with pitcher Bobby Jenks and granted him his unconditional release.
Elsewhere: Pittsburgh optioned outfielder Jose Tabata to triple-A Indianapolis and recalled outfielder Gorkys Hernandez. . . . Oakland activated righthander Bartolo Colon from the DL (strained right oblique muscle) and designated reliever Brian Fuentes for assignment. . . . Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton didn't start against Milwaukee because of a sore right knee.
