BALTIMORE (AP) — Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run over seven innings and the Baltimore Orioles hit three solo home runs in a 3-1 victory over the skidding Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.
Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Brian Roberts homered off Jose Quintana (7-6) 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.
Gonzalez (9-7) gave up four hits — all singles — walked one and struck out six to earn his first win in seven starts since July 20. He was 0-4 in that span.
Tommy Hunter allowed a single in the eighth and Jim Johnson worked a perfect ninth for his 42nd save.
