The Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 in the rubber game of their three-game set Wednesday night. Here's the latest O's and White Sox news.
Right fielder Steve Wilkerson hit his first MLB home run in the fourth inning, a solo shot to put Baltimore up 4-1. It proved to be the deciding run, as the White Sox scored only two more runs in the game.
John Means earned the win on his 25th birthday Wednesday, going five innings and allowing just one run on four hits and a walk, striking out six. Means is now 3-2 on the season.
Chris Davis missed out on Wednesday's win due to a personal matter. After a historically cold start, Davis is hitting .360 in his last nine games.
