Birds Chirping

Orioles 4, White Sox 3 : Birds Chirping – Stevie Wilkerson hits his first major league homerun (#1) in just his 53rd career @ bat & John Means pitches 5 effective innings on his 26th Birthday, as the O’s put together their 2nd winning streak of the season. Dwight Smith Jr. scores on a 2-out double by Renato Nunez, who then scores on a single by Rio Ruiz in the 1st & Hanser Alberto adds a sacfly in the 2nd. Wilkerson homers in the 4th to add a much needed insurance run against Sox starter Ervin Santana. Mychal Givens works the final 2 innings to close it out for his first save, despite giving up a run in the 9th on a double by Jose Abreu, who drives in 2 on the night. Baltimore moves to 3-10 @ home & wins the series. They now have the day off as they head to Minnesota for a 3 game series over the weekend.
