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.

EVERYONE HITS

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