Has anyone ever considered that Brett Lawrie may in fact be a vampire? “I thank God for the opportunity” to make amends, he said. Baltimore Orioles defeated Chicago White Sox 10-2. The truth is I just find his face annoying, and his success against the Orioles perplexing.

The Baltimore Orioles look for consistency after splitting their last 12 games.

Game three of the four game series is one the Orioles would like to have back.

Lawrie went 3 for 3 with two walks and his fourth home run.

The outpouring made a laborious day easier for Sale, who needed 107 pitches to complete five innings.

Suddenly, the White Sox came to life, and the group dinked and dunked Jimenez to death in the fifth inning. So, pitch count got him. We’re playing great baseball against good teams. An inning earlier, David Freese hit a two-out RBI single. Three Orioles starters, including Jimenez, were on the list.

Despite losing the final two games of their four-game set against the Chicago White Sox, there are plenty of good signs in Birdland. Kahnle pitched a scoreless eighth inning.

The 32-year-old right-hander has a 4.17 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 12 career starts against the White Sox, though he gave up just one earned run in 14 innings between two outings against them last season.

“It was an illegal slide”, Ventura said.

The overall pitching for the Chicago has been exceptional this season. In the top of the 9th inning Orioles closer Zach Britton struck out the first two batters he faced.

The Orioles had runners on first and third with no outs after Jones walked and second baseman Lawrie booted a potential double-play grounder. So much for that threat. Young superstar Manny Machado has just one hit in seven at-bats against Sale with one walk and three strikeouts.

Elsewhere, the Seattle Mariners coasted to a 6-0 success against the Kansas City Royals while the Chicago Cubs’ game against the Atlanta Braves was postponed due to bad weather.

Then Rodon’s defense failed him in the fifth. That’s thankless work. You can’t even say “he kept them in the game” because they were out of the game by the time Worley came in and never got back into it. We have some guys who are banged up a little bit. He also became the first Dodgers pitcher to win a 1-0 game in which he drove in the only run since Fernando Valenzuela in 1984.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Tampa Bay missed a chance for an inning-ending double play in the ninth and Troy Tulowitzki followed with a three-run homer as Toronto and Marcus Stroman pulled out a win.

Chicago got Jones at the plate when he left too soon on Hardy’s grounder to third, but Reimold’s infield hit loaded the bases. Zach Britton pitched a ideal ninth to earn his sixth save. Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, not seen, was able to get the ball and throw it to first to get out Frazier on the play. Pedro should only be a DFS play until further notice.

Ubaldo Jimenez will try to lift Baltimore to its fourth win in five games while handing Chicago its second series loss. Washington improved to 17-7 overall, the best start in club history through 24 games.
