Orioles shut out Tigers 1-0

The Orioles' Adam Jones watches his solo home run in the sixth-inning Friday night.

He has surrendered six home runs after serving up 11 over 30 starts for Minnesota last season.

308 against Jimenez the last five years and went 3-for-4 with a walk and two RBI's.

During the last 10 games, they averaged 0.0 runs per game, above their 0.0 season average.

Trumbo is 7 for 18 in four games and has homered three times over the last three.

During the first three games of the series against the Tigers, the O's didn't score any runs from the first inning through the fourth, but they scored 17 from the fifth inning through the eighth, including a nine-spot May 14.

A double by Aaron Hicks and a single by Didi Gregorius produced second-inning runs that the New York Yankees needed to edge the visiting Chicago White Sox yesterday, 2-1. Detroit had runners on first and second with one out in the second, but Jose Iglesias grounded into an inning-ending double play.NOTES: Former Oriole Scott McGregor will take over as the team's pitching coach for four games starting Saturday while pitching coach Dave Wallace leaves to take care of a personal matter.

Hellickson (3-2) gave up two unearned runs and four hits.

In his most recent outing, Wright pitched 5.0 innings, allowing five runs, striking out three and walking two in an 8-4 loss to the Athletics.

"It doesn't hurt and I haven't put weight on it since the first day, so I don't know how it's doing", Hardy said Thursday. "I understand their thinking, but it all revolves around your starting pitcher".

"He's out of whack right now, mechanically", manager Brad Ausmus said. None of those numbers are impressive by any stretch of the imagination, but that roller coaster we have been talking about does make you believe he has been better than his numbers.

"They were pitchers as much as throwers", Showalter said.

Jones connected off Drew VerHagen in the eighth, and Schoop completed the rout with a no-doubt drive off Mark Lowe. He's continued to heat up at the plate in May. "That's why this game is so tough".

Vance Worley worked two scoreless innings of relief, though not stress free, and has now posted six straight scoreless relief outings. "So get it while the getting's good and handle the things that come our way".

WHITE SOX 7, YANKEES 1: Chris Sale became the major leagues' first eight-game victor, working quickly and efficiently in a six-hitter at NY. We have more confidence that when we go out there, we're going to get another zero, and then with our bats, if we can just keep [the opposition] without scoring, then eventually we're going to find some barrels. Let's hope this was what it takes to get Miggy back on track.

The Detroit Tigers have been struggling to win games, and part of the reason is the lack of power by Miguel Cabrera.

The big thing is that we can sit back down and relax because our pitchers have done such a good job of keeping us there.
