Jackson Leads White Sox Past Orioles
CHICAGO (AP) -- Edwin Jackson struck out 10 in eight dominant innings, Alex Rios hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-0 Thursday night for their first series victory in three weeks.

Jackson allowed three hits and walked two, improving to 2-0 with a sparkling 0.96 ERA in four starts since he was acquired from Arizona on July 30. The right-hander, who threw a no-hitter on June 25 at Tampa Bay, has struck out 34 in 28 innings with Chicago.

The White Sox ended a streak of five consecutive series losses, winning a set for the first time since they took three of four at Detroit from Aug. 3-5. They had lost seven of their last 10 games and 11 of 16 overall.
