BALTIMORE (AP) --- Chris Sale struck out 12 over 7 2-3 shutout innings and the
Chicago White Sox defeated the Orioles 3-2 Thursday in the first game of a
doubleheader caused by rioting in Baltimore last month.
A modest crowd watched the opener at Camden Yards. The doubleheader was
scheduled after games on April 27-28 were postponed because of riots near the
ballpark following the death of Freddie Gray. The third game of that series was
played without fans in the stadium.
Sale (4-2) gave up four singles and walked none. The left-hander was pulled in
the eighth after striking out Caleb Joseph and Everth Cabrera to raise his
pitch count to 120.
Chris Davis hit a two-run homer off Zach Duke in the ninth before Jake Petricka
struck out Travis Snider for his first save. Davis has three homers in his last
Tyler Wilson (1-1) matched zeroes with Sale until the sixth.
