White Sox 3, Orioles 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated July 04, 2013
Adam Dunn hit a one-out home run in the bottom of the ninth inning off Tommy Hunter to give the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday. Chicago starter Jose Quintana had a career-high 11 strikeouts and reliever Addison Reed (2-0) got the victory. Dunn homered to left off Hunter (3-2) to end the game. Quintana went a seventh straight game without a decision, allowing two hits over seven innings. He retired the last 13 Orioles he faced. Alex Rios broke up a scoreless tie in the sixth inning with an RBI single and Dunn followed with an RBI single off Zach Britton. Baltimore scored twice in the eighth off reliever Nate Jones, one on an RBI infield grounder by pinch-hitter Matt Wieters and the other on Nick Markakis' sacrifice fly. Quintana's previous career high for strikeouts had been eight on July 5, 2012 against Texas. Baltimore starter Zach Britton struck out three, walked one and gave up six hits over seven innings in his longest stint of the season. Rios, who went 2 for 3, singled up the middle off Britton for the game's first run after Alexei Ramirez had led off with a double down the left-field line. After Ramirez scored on Rios' hit and Dayan Viciedo flew out, Dunn singled up the middle for a 2-0 Chicago lead. NOTES: White Sox manager Robin Ventura said SP Jake Peavy, on the disabled list since June 6, will throw Friday. Ventura said he doesn't expect Peavy to return from his broken rib until after the All-Star break. ... Baltimore signed South Korean left-hander Jung-Hyun Yoon. He is slated to report to the Orioles spring training complex in Sarasota to be evaluated for assignment within their system. ... The sixth inning has become a nemesis for Britton, who had given up a .643 batting average in sixth innings coming into the contest and then allowed two more runs. ... The starting time for the White Sox-Orioles Sept. 7 game in Baltimore has been moved to 1:05 p.m. from 7:05 p.m. Baltimore right-hander Miguel Gonzalez (6-3, 3.77) starts Friday night at New York against Ivan Nova (2-2, 4.63) of the Yankees. The White Sox play at Tampa Bay Friday night, with Dylan Axelrod (3-4, 4.57) facing Jeremy Hellickson (7-3, 4.90) of Tampa Bay.
