Three home runs to left field were all the Orioles needed to pull off a 3-1 victory over the White Sox at Camden Yards on Thursday night.

The Sox offense mustered just five hits in losing the seventh straight game of their 10-game road trip.

Adam Jones hit his homer in the first off Sox starter Jose Quintana, and J.J. Hardy and Brian Roberts added homers off of him in the fifth.

“We’ve played that type of game a lot this year, and we just couldn’t score enough runs to win,” Sox first baseman Paul Konerko said. “Another tough loss for (Quintana). He has pitched real well for us and we haven’t gotten enough wins for him.”

Quintana, who was pitching after he threw just one inning in Monday’s rain-delayed game in New York, gave up the three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four in seven innings.

“I was trying to stop our losing streak today,” Quintana said through a team interpreter. “So it was a tough game.”

The Sox had four hits against Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez, who walked one and struck out six.

They scored their only run in the third when they loaded the bases with two singles and a walk before recording an out. Alejandro De Aza grounded into a double play, but Conor Gillaspie scored.

“It’s frustrating,” Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “You just keep going. Nothing else you can do.”
