Axelrod's Strong Outing Pushes White Sox Past Orioles

Last updated on Thursday, August 30, 2012

(Baltimore, MD) - Dylan Axelrod threw seven and a third innings of three-hit ball as the Chicago White Sox knocked off the Baltimore Orioles 8-1.

The Sox jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the first on a two-run double from Alex Rios and a two-run single from Alexei Ramirez.

Gordon Beckham would add an R-B-I double in the fourth and a two-run single in the sixth as the rout was on.

Axelrod, who was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, allowed one earned run in evening his record at 2-2.

The Orioles had their four-game winning streak come to an end.

Chicago's win combined with Detroit's 1-0 loss in Kansas City gives the Sox a three-game lead over the Tigers in the AL Central.
