White Sox Latest Victim Of Orioles' Amazing Aptitude In 1-Run Games

In a game in which neither team ever led by more than one run, the Orioles managed to win their 13th-consecutive one-run game, ending the White Sox's six-game winning streak.

As is the case in many one-run affairs, Monday night's game came down to the bullpens. Brett Myers has been solid for the White Sox all year, but he allowed two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Orioles a 4-3 lead.

As described by Jim Margalus, here's how the runs were allowed:

Brett Myers issued a one-out walk to Mark Reynolds on a 3-2 curveball off the corner that Reynolds somehow found a way to take. Two pitches later, Nate McLouth -- he of one homer of the year -- hit his second on a grooved 1-0 fastball, giving the Orioles a 4-3 lead and the ballgame, killing the White Sox's winning streak at six games.
