Abreu leads White Sox past Orioles 8-7
BALTIMORE (AP) — Jose Abreu hit a tie-breaking RBI single in the ninth inning off reliever Vance Worley, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-7 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.
After Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer off Darren O’Day in the eighth to give Chicago a 7-5 lead, Chris Davis tied the game in the bottom half with a two-run double off Zach Duke. Those runs were charged to Matt Albers, ending his streak of 30 consecutive scoreless appearances.
Adam Eaton and Carlos Sanchez reached base with two outs in the ninth against Zach Britton (1-1). Worley entered and allowed the single to Abreu. Nate Jones (2-0) got the final four outs for the win.
Pedro Alvarez had three hits, including a homer, off Chicago’s Mat Latos, who entered the game with a 5-0 record. Latos allowed four runs and a career-high 11 hits over just five innings.
