|Orioles Lifted Over White Sox
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- Matt Wieters hit a two-run single in the 10th inning to give the Baltimore Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.
Pinch-hitter Henry Urrutia started the winning rally with a one-out infield single against closer Addison Reed. Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson then went all the way to third on Nick Markakis' base hit.
Reed bounced back with a strikeout of Nate McLouth, but Markakis stole second and both runners scored on Wieters lined a single into right field.
It was the ninth consecutive loss for the White Sox, who grabbed a 3-2 lead on Conor Gillaspie's pinch-hit homer in the top half of the inning.
