Quentin's HR, Rios' RBI Double Pace Sox Win

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) – Alex Rios came through with a base hit in the eighth to plate the deciding run as the White Sox cooled off the streaking Orioles with a 4-2 win in the continuation of a four-game series from Camden Yards.

Carlos Quentin homered and A.J. Pierzynski hit a game-tying double in the seventh to erase an early 2-0 deficit and hand Chicago its 10th win in 13 games.

Gavin Floyd (8-8) tossed seven innings of six-hit, two-run ball for his third straight win. It was the first time he surrendered more than one earned run in a span of seven starts.

Matt Thornton fired a scoreless eighth — his 21st consecutive scoreless appearance — and J.J. Putz pitched the ninth for his third save of the season.

Adam Jones, who had the game-winning hit in the 10th inning of Friday’s opener, homered Saturday and finished with two hits. Ty Wigginton knocked in the other run for the Orioles, who had won a season-high four straight to open the Buck Showalter era.

Jason Berken (3-3) allowed two runs in 1 1/3 innings of relief to suffer the loss. Starter Kevin Millwood went six innings and held the Sox to four hits — one a solo home run that served as his only run allowed.
