|Homes Lifts Orioles Over White Sox
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- Brian Roberts hit his first home run of the season leading off the 10th inning, and the Baltimore Orioles continued their uncanny run of success under new manager Buck Showalter with a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.
Baltimore is 6-1 since Showalter made his debut last Tuesday. Earl Weaver is the only other manager in the history of the Orioles to win six of his first seven games.
After sweeping three games from the Los Angeles Angels, the last-place Orioles took three of four from Chicago, giving them successive series wins for the first time since July 2009. The homestand was Baltimore's best since it went 7-0 against Seattle and Texas from Aug. 3-9, 2004.
