Benches clear, bullpen clear as Orioles beat White Sox 4-1 for third straight win

Jorge Mateo was hit by a 99 mph fastball from Michael Kopech, after which a fight broke out. Soon members of the Orioles and the Chicago White Sox were pouring into the field from dugouts and pits to continue the discussion. Although the mood remained high, the players and coaches were back where they came from, with the exception of Mateo, who settled at first base with two outs.

Naturally, the Orioles speedster took second place and then scored a goal when Richie Martin was on the right. Martin then stole second and third, and although he was stuck there, that potential run was not needed in Baltimore’s 4-1 win at Guaranteed Rate Field on Friday night, third in a row and sixth in eight games.

In the second straight turn in the Orioles rotation, a bullpen game started by Austin Voth ended with just one allowed run as Voth, combined with four other prior waiver claims, held the reigning Central American League champion White Sox with just one hit. .

Voth was handed the lead before he even took the mound. Leading player Cedric Mullins reached for a single, stole a second, went to third on the ground out and scored on a wild pitch. Mullins’ interception was the first of five interceptions against the Orioles (33–39), their first game with so many stolen bags since a 16-inning contest in July 2019 that ended with Stevie Wilkerson recording a positional player’s first save.

On Friday, such a feat was not needed. There was a skirmish in the second inning, but it didn’t go beyond screaming and no one was ejected. Shortly after Mateo stole second place, the judges stepped between him and White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, who continued to exchange words.

That gave up a run late in the second, only the second Baltimore allowed for 27 innings. By the end of the game, that number had increased to 34, with Joey Krebil, Brian Baker, Sionel Perez and Jorge Lopez posting scoreless games after Vot’s three innings.

Daily double room

The Orioles added a couple of insurance runs thanks to three doubles.

In the fourth round, Adly Rutchman continued his hot stretch, sending the ball down the right field line. It was the 24-year-old’s 11th off-base hit in his last 13 games, only handled by six other Orioles aged 25 and under: Manny Machado, Jonathan Shoop, Nick Markakis, Cal Ripken Jr., Eddie Murray and Don. Baylor.

Trey Mancini and Austin Hayes hit back-to-back double wall shots in left-center field in the eighth round of the final game.

Bradish to Illinois

The Orioles placed rookie starter Kyle Bradish on a 15-day injury list with an inflamed right shoulder. The club had already pushed back his scheduled start by a day, prompting Vot’s exit. Instead, the Orioles have recalled right-hander Marcos Diplan and will likely add Spencer Watkins to the major league roster to kick off Saturday’s game.

“There was some soreness after his side session a couple of days ago, but we’re doing it as a precaution,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “We hope it only takes a couple of weeks, but he does have some fatigue and it will take us a couple of weeks to get some treatment.”

Around the horn

>> Second baseman Roguened Odor pulled out of the roster for the second straight game with back pain.

>> In Triple-A Norfolk, No. 7 prospect Jordan Westburg had five hits and No. 9 prospect Kyle Stowers had four, including a home run.

>> 10th prospect Heston Kjerstad, the second overall pick in the 2020 draft, hit his first professional home run for Low-A Delmarva.
