CHICAGO (AP) — Yonder Alonso hit a two-run single with two out in the ninth inning, and the Chicago White Sox salvaged a split of their doubleheader with the Baltimore Orioles with a 7-6 victory on Wednesday night.
Leury Garcia sparked the winning rally with a leadoff walk. Adam Engel then reached on a bunt when Evan Phillips (0-1) threw late to first.
With two down and runners on second and third, Jose Abreu was walked intentionally to get to Alonso, who lined a game-ending single into left field.
Thyago Vieira (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, and then was returned to Triple-A Charlotte after the game.
Baltimore won the opener 5-4 on Jonathan Villar’s tiebreaking sacrifice fly off Kelvin Herrera (0-1). Branden Kline (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the Orioles, and Mychal Givens got four outs for his second save in three chances.
