Jackson, who struck out 11 in his previous start against Detroit on Aug. 14, has recorded 10 or more Ks in consecutive starts for the first time in his career. He became the first White Sox pitcher to accomplish the feat since Javier Vazquez in 2007.
Jackson was supposed to pitch against Kansas City last Friday but the game was rained out and manager Ozzie Guillen decided against starting him in Saturday's doubleheader.
NOTES: Orioles CF Adam Jones was scratched with a bruised left shoulder and is day to day. Felix Pie moved from left to center and Corey Patterson was inserted into the lineup in left. ... In the midst of a roller-coaster season, Guillen said he loves managing in Chicago and was shopping for a house in the area on Thursday morning. ... White Sox general manager Kenny Williams was mostly quiet about potential waiver claims but acknowledged he was keeping a close eye on the budget. "We are stretched right now and, quite frankly, we're looking at walk-ups every day to see exactly what we're going to have available to us," Williams said. "But he (owner Jerry Reinsdorf) certainly hasn't given me any reason to think that there are any restrictions right now on dollars." The White Sox have been linked to interest in Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez. ... The announced attendance Thursday night was 23,898.
