THE O’s JUMPED OUT TO AN EARLY LEAD AND HELD THE WHITE SOX IN CHECK IN THE LATTER INNINGS TO TAKE THE VICTORY AT CHRISTIE PITS
Game Summary edited with file from Marc Rose
Beneath a ceiling of warm and hazy skies, the Orioles defeated the White Sox 7-3 in 3 ½ innings of Mosquito Division action this evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2.
Here is a White Sox account of the proceedings:
- In the first two innings, the White Sox were kept off the scoreboard despite well-earned walks from Sam (7), Callum (15), Khalil (6), and Daniella (13), and found themselves down 7-0 by the end of the second.
- The top of the third started in dramatic fashion for the White Sox with back-to-back triples from Willem (12) and Ethan (14). Anthony (9) brought home two more runs after a single by Tavaris (5) and a walk by Khalil to bring the White Sox to within four.
- In the bottom of the third, the White Sox were equally impressive, with reliever Khalil striking out the side and preventing any further runs by the O’s.
- While Kade (4) started the top of the fourth with a walk and two stolen bases, the White Sox were unable to capitalize, and the game ended with a rundown near home plate.
