|White Sox Hold on to Defeat Orioles
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- Brent Morel homered and drove in two runs, Carlos Quentin also connected, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 Tuesday night for their season-high fifth straight victory.
Chicago built a 4-0 lead after four innings, let the margin dwindle to a run in the fifth, then held on to secure its seventh successive road win.
Gavin Floyd (10-10) gave up three runs in 6 2-3 innings for the White Sox. The Maryland native is 3-0 with a 2.28 ERA lifetime in Baltimore. Coming off a horrid performance against the Yankees in which he surrendered 10 runs in 2 1-3 innings, Floyd improved to 4-1 in his last five starts.
Sergio Santos struck out Robert Andino for the final out to earn his 24th save.
