Bundy earns 5th victory as Orioles beat White Sox 6-5

- Dylan Bundy pitched six effective innings to earn his fourth straight victory, Trey Mancini homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Saturday night.

Manny Machado hit his team-leading eighth home run for the Orioles, who will seek to complete a three-game sweep on Sunday.

Bundy (5-1) allowed three runs and six hits, walking one and striking out three. The right-hander is tied for the major league lead in wins and has pitched at least six innings in each of his seven starts.

Bundy left with a 6-3 lead, and the bullpen made it stand up -- barely.

Mychal Givens surrendered a two-run homer to Jose Abreu in the eighth before Darren O'Day worked the ninth for his second save. The Orioles are without a clear-cut closer after lefty Zach Britton was placed on the disabled list for a second time Saturday with a strained left forearm.

Despite rallying from an early 4-0 deficit and getting a home run from Cody Asche, the White Sox fell to 6-14 in their last 20 games at Camden Yards.

Still seeking his first major league victory, Chicago rookie Dylan Covey (0-3) gave up six runs and 10 hits in four-plus innings. He's got an 8.28 ERA and has allowed seven home runs in five starts.

The Orioles batted around in a three-run first inning that featured five hits, a walk and a bases-loaded balk.

Machado made it 4-0 in the second with his fourth home run in the last six games.

Chicago halved the margin in the fifth inning, getting a sacrifice fly from Melky Cabrera and an RBI single from Leury Garcia.

Mancini connected in the bottom half with a two-run drive that ended Covey's outing.


All nine Orioles starters had at least one hit. Machado, Mancini and Mark Trumbo had two apiece, all off Covey.


White Sox: 3B Todd Frazier was back in the lineup after missing two games with back stiffness. "I am the kind of guy who plays through a lot of stuff, (but this) was something I just couldn't do," he said.

Orioles: Britton and RHP Gabriel Ynoa (hamstring) were placed on the 10-day DL. ... 2B Jonathan Schoop sat out the game after being hit on the right wrist with a pitch on Friday night. He had a streak of 190 consecutive starts, second-most in the majors behind Kansas City's Alcides Escobar (199). ... LHP Wade Miley said he had full range of motion in his left wrist, where he was struck with a line drive on Friday.


White Sox: Jose Quintana (2-4, 4.10 ERA) makes his seventh start. The left-hander is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA in his last two starts.

Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman comes off the DL to make his season debut following a lengthy bout with shoulder bursitis.
