CHICAGO (AP) -Paul Konerko hit a pair of home runs to lead the Chicago White Sox over the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 Sunday.
Hitting just .197 with three homers coming in, Konerko connected off Jeremy Guthrie leading off the second and sixth innings. The teams split a doubleheader Saturday and finish the four-game series Monday afternoon.
Jose Contreras (2-2) earned his second win against Baltimore this season, giving up Brian Roberts' home run in the third. Contreras allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out three in 6 2-3 innings.
In the sixth, A.J. Pierzynski followed Konerko's homer with a single and Matt Albers replaced Guthrie. Carlos Quentin singled off Albers and both runners advanced on a sacrifice by Alexei Ramirez.
Brian Anderson then hit a grounder toward charging shortstop Brandon Fahey, whose throw home was wild and allowed Pierzynski scored. While catcher Ramon Hernandez corralled the ball, Quentin came charging around third to score, sliding under a wild throw by Hernandez that allowed Anderson to take second. Fahey and Hernandez were charged with errors on the play.
Guthrie (0-3) gave up three runs in five-plus innings. He allowed five hits and two walks, striking out five.
Greg Aquino walked the bases loaded in the seventh before hitting Quentin to let in a run. Ramirez drove in a run with a fielder's choice.
