BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles hit three solo home runs in a 3-1 victory over the skidding Chicago White Sox last night. Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Brian Roberts homered off Jose Quintana to provide Baltimore with a much-needed win. The Orioles were coming off a 3-6 road trip that dropped them four games off the pace in the AL wild-card hunt.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds recovered from a 16-inning loss by overpowering the St. Louis Cardinals 6-2 last night. Left-hander Tony Cingrani returned from a sore back and did a little bit of everything. He pitched into the sixth inning, gave up two runs, bunted for a hit, stole a base and scored. David Freese homered for the Cardinals.
CINCINNATI (AP) — St. Louis first baseman Allen Craig has a sprained left foot but no fracture. That's a big relief for a Cardinals team that feared it had lost its cleanup hitter for the rest of the season. Craig hurt his foot while rounding first base during a 5-4, 16-inning win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills could be in for a rude welcome to the NFL. The Bears fired Lovie Smith and hired coach Marc Trestman. They brought him in hoping he could help quarterback Jay Cutler reach his potential. That hinges on the line.
