O’Hearn homers as the Orioles rally past the White Sox 5-3

CHICAGO (AP) — Ryan O’Hearn, Anthony Santander and Jordan Westburg homered during Baltimore’s five-run eighth inning, and the Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 on Saturday.

Adley Rutschman walked ahead of O’Hearn’s seventh homer, a drive to right-center off Jordan Leasure. Ryan Mountcastle then singled against Michael Kopech (1-4) and Santander lifted the Orioles to a 4-3 lead with a shot to right for his ninth on the season.

After Colton Cowser struck out, Westburg tacked on his eighth homer. Baltimore had been held to just three singles before its big inning.

Dillon Tate (2-0) tossed 2 1/3 hitless innings, helping the Orioles improve to 3-3 on a seven-game trip. Cionel Pérez handled the ninth for his first save of the season.

The last-place White Sox wasted a sharp performance by Erick Fedde in the team’s eighth loss in nine games. Fedde allowed three hits, struck out six and walked three in 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

Orioles right-hander Albert Suárez allowed two hits — both singles — in four scoreless innings in his first start since April 28. He stepped in for Dean Kremer after the veteran right-hander went on the 15-day injured list on Friday because of a strained right triceps.

After Suárez departed, the White Sox got to Keegan Akin in the fifth. With two out and the bases loaded, Sheets made it 3-0 with a triple off the wall in right-center.
