|Orioles Get Past White Sox
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- Nate McLouth hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning, Lew Ford also connected and the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the White Sox 4-3 on Monday night, ending Chicago's six-game winning streak.
It was the franchise-record 13th consecutive one-run win for the Orioles, who trailed 2-1 in the sixth and 3-2 in the eighth.
After the White Sox went up 3-2 in the eighth against Pedro Strop (5-2) on a run-scoring infield single by Adam Dunn, Baltimore answered in the bottom half against Brett Myers (2-2).
Mark Reynolds drew a one-out walk and McLouth drove a 1-0 pitch far over the wall in right-center. It was his third RBI of the game and second home run since the Orioles purchased his contract from Triple-A Norfolk on Aug. 4.
