White Sox rally to beat Orioles
CHICAGO (AP) — Yolmer Sanchez capped Chicago’s three-run eighth with a tiebreaking RBI single, lifting the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.
Welington Castillo also had an RBI single and Yoan Moncada added a sacrifice fly as last-place Chicago won for the fourth time in six games. Bruce Rondon (2-2) pitched a scoreless eighth and Nate Jones got three outs for his fourth save.
Mark Trumbo went 4 for 4 with two doubles for Baltimore, which won 3-2 on Monday night in the series opener between two of the AL’s worst teams.
The last-place Orioles wasted a gem by Kevin Gausman, who matched a career high with 10 strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander allowed nine hits and walked one.
Mychal Givens (0-1) replaced Gausman and got the last two outs in the seventh. But he ran into trouble in the eighth.
Daniel Palka led off with a triple that bounced off the glove of Trumbo in the right-field corner. Castillo followed with a run-scoring single.
After Leury Garcia struck out, Jose Rondon singled to put runners on first and third. Givens then walked light-hitting Adam Engel to load the bases.
Richard Bleier then came in to face Moncada, who tied it at 2 with a fly ball to right. Sanchez then hit a line-drive single to right to score pinch-runner Trayce Thompson.
The Orioles scored both of their runs in the second.
Jonathan Schoop led off with a single and Pedro Alvarez walked with one out to put runners on first and second. Trumbo then drove in Schoop with a double down the left-field line, and Jace Peterson added a run-scoring groundout.
