The Orioles took the series from the Chicago White Sox with a 5-3 victory on Thursday afternoon at Camden Yards.
Zach Britton turned in one of his best performances...ever. He went eight solid innings, allowing just a run on seven hits, walking none while striking out a career-high ten. Britton (4-1) was in control the entire game...he never went to ball three against a single batter.
The O's were retired in order through the first eight batters before Taylor Teagarden went deep to tie the game in the third. It was the first of five straight extra-base hits...the four-run inning was capped-off with Adam Jones' 26th homer of the season and second in as many games.
The Birds (72-58) are now three games behind the first-place Yankees...and head to New York to start a three-game set on Friday night. Wow. Big series? That's an understatement. Miguel Gonzalez is slated to take the mound...stay tuned!
