About Last Night: O's Lose Second Game of Doubleheader, 6-5

This year, there's something plainly different about the Orioles. After Brian Burres' brilliant outing in the first game of the doubleheader yesterday, Baltimore clawed back into the thick of things; however the White Sox won in the end, 6-5, thanks to a Brian Anderson single with the bases loaded.

Mark Buehrle gave up three runs on three hits over six innings for the White Sox, but came away with a no decision. Bobby Jenks (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.

Anderson finished 2-for-5 with two RBI, while Nick Swisher (who seemingly always punishes the Orioles) belted his third home run for Chicago. A.J. Pierzynski and Carlos Quentin each had two hits and scored a run.

Steve Trachsel was off, and was charged with five runs (only four earned) in 3 innings of work. The Oriole bullpen shut down the White until Bierd's appearance in the ninth inning.

Luke Scott went 2-for-3 with a run scored, while Ramon Hernandez knocked in a pair of runs. Kevin Millar hit his 4th homer, and Melvin had two hits and an RBI.

Baltimore is playing right now, and the score is tied 1-1.
