Crisp ended Humber's streak with double leading off sixth, a grounder that struck the first base bag and skipped up the right-field line. Pennington just missed a homer on a flyout to right, advancing Crisp to third. Crisp scored on Ryan Sweeney's groundout to second, cutting Chicago's lead to 3-2.
Humber appeared to be cruising through the seventh, one strike away from his fifth perfect inning of the game, before Sizemore homered on a 1-2 pitch to left.
NOTES: Dunn tied Joe DiMaggio for 72nd on the all-time home run list with his 361st. Humber, one of the league's most surprising pitchers, was a member of the Oakland organization for about a month during the offseason, before being waived to make room for free-agent signee Grant Balfour. Dunn struck out against Oakland reliever Brian Fuentes in the eighth. Dunn is hitting .031 (1 for 47) against left-handed pitching this season.
