BALTIMORE (AP) — Chris Sale struck out 12 over 7 2-3 shutout innings to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory Thursday over the Orioles, who rebounded to win the second game 6-3 in a doubleheader caused by rioting in Baltimore last month.

The doubleheader was scheduled after games on April 27-28 were postponed because of riots near the ballpark following the funeral of a black man who died of injuries sustained while in police custody. The third game of that series was played without fans in the stadium.

A crowd of 18,441 showed up Thursday.

The nightcap featured a matchup of rookie right-handers. Chris Beck (0-1) made his major league debut for the White Sox and Mike Wright (2-0) was starting for the third time after scoreless appearances against the Angels and Miami.
