Alejandro De Aza had two hits and two RBIs while Tyler Flowers
contributed a run-scoring single as the White Sox halted an
eight-game road skid. Conor Gillaspie and Alexei Ramirez each added
two hits for Chicago, which recorded 11 overall.
Quintana (4-7) allowed one run and six hits while issuing three
walks in winning for the first time since May 26. Ronald Belisario
allowed a run-scoring single by Delmon Young in the ninth before
inducing fellow pinch hitter Ryan Flaherty to bounce into a
game-ending double play for his eighth save.
Beckham smacked a one-out drive over the left-field wall off Miguel
Gonzalez (4-5) in the first inning and De Aza laced an RBI single to
right in the second to give the White Sox a 2-0 lead. Dayan Viciedo,
De Aza and Flowers strung together two-out singles in fourth to make
it a three-run advantage.
Steve Pearce slugged a homer to left in the sixth to get the Orioles
on the board. Chicago added an insurance run in the eighth, when
Ramirez singled, stole second, moved to third on a passed ball and
slipped his foot under the high tag attempt by Baltimore catcher
Caleb Joseph to score on De Aza’s fielder’s choice.
