Hammel Strikes Out 10, Orioles Hold Off White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jason Hammel struck out 10 and closer Jim Johnson fanned Alex Rios with the bases loaded Thursday to give the Baltimore Orioles a 5-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Adam Jones hit his fifth homer of the season for Baltimore. The two-run shot in the fifth inning was his first this year with a runner on base.

Hammel (2-0) matched a career high for strikeouts, doing it in just six innings. He worked out of trouble early, stranding the bases loaded in the first and third.

Johnson earned his sixth save. He has converted 14 straight chances dating to last season.

Hammel bested Gavin Floyd (1-2), who allowed five runs and six hits in six innings.
