White Sox 4, Orioles 2: Adam Dunn blasted a two-run homer and Andre Rienzo worked into the seventh inning as visiting Chicago snapped its nine-game losing streak.

Rienzo (2-1) yielded one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings and Addison Reed worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his 37th save. Baltimore saw its three-game winning streak end and fell two games behind Tampa Bay for the second American League wild card.

The White Sox took an early lead on Dayan Viciedo’s RBI double in the second off Bud Norris (10-11), who surrendered four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings. Alejandro De Aza added a run-scoring single in the fourth for Chicago, which avoided its second 10-game losing streak of the season.

Adam Jones led off the fourth with his 31st home run for the Orioles, who were held to six hits and went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position. Baltimore has relied on the long ball over the past week, with 19 of their last 24 runs scoring via home runs.

Alexei Ramirez, Conor Gillaspie and Viciedo had two hits apiece for the White Sox, who added to their lead in the fifth when Ramirez delivered a leadoff single and scored on Dunn’s 31st homer. The Orioles loaded the bases with none out in the ninth, but they managed just one run before the White Sox recorded a game-ending double play on Brian Roberts' pop-out to first baseman Jeff Keppinger.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Baltimore hit eight solo home runs during the four-game series. … The White Sox begin a 10-game homestand on Monday against Detroit, while Baltimore hosts the New York Yankees for the start of a four-game series. … Dunn, who finished 1-for-4 with three strikeouts, moved into a tie with Jason Giambi for 40th all-time with 437 home runs.
