Orioles Start Series off in Chicago With a Dominating Win.

Last night in Chicago, the OriolesOrioles started off their seven-game road trip with a dominating win over the Chicago White SoxChicago White Sox, 10-4.

The offense busted outThe offense busted out against a seemingly hapless White Sox team as they used a crazy five-run seventh inning to put them away. Matt Wieters -- who I wrote about the other day -- may finally be starting to look like the player we saw out of the minors, as he went 2-for-5, drove in four and hit his fourth homer of the year.

Robert Andino, who has filled in admirably for the injured J.J. Hardy, had three hits on the night. Brian Roberts drove in three and had two hits. I was looking through the stats after the game and didn't know that Rpberts has driven in 19 RBI so far -- that's nice work from the leadoff spot for sure.

Luke Scott also homered in the 4th inning. That was his fourth of the year, a solo shot.

Jake Arrieta got the win with a so-so effort, going five innings and giving up three runs for his third win of the season. The bullpen -- Clay Rapada, Jim Johnson and Jeremy Accardo -- did a solid job overall, giving up a run in four innings of work. Meanwhile, a shaky John Danks took the loss.

The Orioles this season seem to have very little margin of error when it comes to them winning or losing; however, it was about time to see the offense finally getting things together and pounding a team they should beat.
