CHICAGO (AP) Jonathan Schoop homered in his first at-bat since coming off the disabled list and Miguel Gonzalez threw six solid innings as the Baltimore Orioles routed the Chicago White Sox 9-1 on Sunday.
Adam Jones had two doubles and Steve Pearce had three hits as the Orioles snapped a three-game losing streak. Baltimore had scored six runs in their previous four games combined.
The White Sox committed four errors and saw their four-game winning streak end. Chicago was trying to sweep the Orioles for the first time since 2005.
Schoop was activated from the 60-day DL before the game after being sidelined by a sprained right knee. He hit a solo homer in the second inning off Carlos Rodon (3-2), Schoop's first home run in the majors since April 15.
Gonzalez (7-5) allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one.
The Orioles scored four runs as the White Sox committed two errors in the seventh. Chris Davis and Pearce hit RBI singles before the Orioles loaded the bases on reliever Dan Jennings' wild throw to second. A run scored on second baseman Carlos Sanchez misplayed a potential double-play grounder, and another run scored on a groundout.
The Orioles went ahead in the first after two errors on the same play. Third baseman Conor Gillaspie fumbled the ball and made a wild throw on Nolan Reimold's grounder and Jones snapped a 0-for-11 slump with an RBI double.
Caleb Joseph hit a two-run double in the sixth off Daniel Webb.
Davis was robbed of a home run for the second straight game. J.B. Shuck caught his long flyball at the wall in left field in the eighth. A run scored on the sacrifice fly.
Avisail Garcia caught a drive by Davis in right field in the ninth Saturday.
Melky Cabrera hit an RBI double in the Chicago sixth but was thrown out trying to extend it to a triple.
Orioles: 2B Schoop (sprained right knee) hit .259 with three home runs and seven RBIs in nine games to begin the season before he went on the 15-day disabled list on April 18. He moved to the 60-day DL on June 16. He hit .265 with four home runs in nine rehab games between Double-A Bowie and High-A Frederick. To make room for Schoop, the Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. He hit .248 in 51 games.
Orioles: LHP Wei-Yin Chen (4-4, 2.84 ERA) will start Monday to open a three-game road series against Minnesota.
White Sox: LHP Chris Sale (6-4, 2.87) will take the mound Monday to begin a four-game series against Toronto.
