BALTIMORE – Matt Wieters struck out when he had a chance to put Baltimore in front in the eighth inning. He made the most of his second opportunity. Wieters hit a two-run single in the 10th to give the Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. Baltimore was 1 for 17 with runners in scoring position before Wieters secured its third consecutive victory. "I thought we deserved it," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "It was frustrating, but we finally break through there at the end. Our guys did a lot of great things to set up those situations and we just couldnt get over that hump." Pinch-hitter Henry Urrutia started the winning rally with a one-out infield single against closer Addison Reed (5-3). Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson then went all the way to third on Nick Markakis bloop single. "I thought one of the keys was the read Dickerson made on the ball that Nicky hit," Showalter said. "A lot of guys play that safe and dont trust their instincts and end up at second base." Reed bounced back with a strikeout of Nate McLouth, but Markakis stole second and both runners scored when Wieters lined a single into right field. "Keep getting opportunities, thats all you can ask for," said Wieters, who struck out with runners on the corners in the eighth. "Whether you succeed or not, you want that next opportunity to come to you and you want another chance." It was the ninth consecutive loss for the White Sox, who grabbed a 3-2 lead on Conor Gillaspies pinch-hit homer against Tommy Hunter (4-3) in the top half of the inning. "We battled back, Conor with the big homer," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Anytime you lose late, it always hurts. You just bounce back, keep going." Danny Valencia had three hits and Brian Roberts homered for the Orioles. They began the day two games behind Tampa Bay for the final AL wild-card slot. The Orioles improved to 7-5 in extra-inning games while the White Sox fell to 9-14. "I made a terrible pitch to Wieters right there on that last pitch and he made me pay for it," Reed said. Dayan Viciedo also homered for last-place Chicago, and Paul Konerko had two hits. After scoring in the third inning of Thursdays series opener, Chicago went 18 innings without a run until Konerko singled in Alexei Ramirez in the fourth. Viciedo connected in the fifth, giving the White Sox a 2-1 lead, but Roberts went deep in the bottom half, tying the game with Baltimores major league-leading 192nd homer. Each team then had its chances to move in front, but couldnt come up with a clutch hit. "There was a lot of Houdini stuff going on in there," Ventura said of his pitchers. "Theyd get in trouble and work their way out of it. With the way it was going today, you almost figured Reed was going to do the same thing, but it just didnt happen." Baltimore left Adam Jones at third with two outs in the seventh inning. The Orioles had two runners in the eighth, but pinch-hitter Wieters struck out on a slider from Nate Jones and Roberts grounded out. Wieters sensed Reed might try to retire him with another slider in the 10th. "I knew that was definitely an option," Wieters said. "I just wanted to stay back and try to find some outfield grass." Hector Santiago threw five solid innings for the White Sox, allowing two runs and seven hits. The left-hander is 1-3 with a 3.80 ERA in his last 13 starts. Baltimore left-hander Wei-Yin Chen gave up two runs and six hits in six innings. He struck out eight and walked none. The Orioles grabbed the lead when Chris Davis doubled into the gap in left-centre in the first, driving in Manny Machado from first. The hit lifted Davis total to 124 RBIs, second-most in the majors behind Detroits Miguel Cabrera. "We have to keep winning," Wieters said. "We have to win tomorrow and come here with that mindset. Its go time now. Theres no more get em later. Its go now and make our run." NOTES: Machado and Jones each had two of Baltimores 13 hits. …White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper missed the game after a reoccurrence of diverticulitis led to him being hospitalized. … Chicago lost three at Boston and three at Yankee Stadium before arriving in Baltimore. …Orioles starter Bud Norris (10-10, 4.01 ERA) opposes fellow RHP Andre Rienzo (1-1, 5.03 ERA) in Sundays series finale.

SALT LAKE CITY – Gordon Haywards pinpoint shooting got the Utah Jazz off to their best start of the season and Marvin Williams made the plays at the end for their most impressive victory of the season. Williams scored five points in the final two minutes, Hayward broke out of a shooting slump to score 29 points and the Jazz earned their first back-to-back wins of the season with a 109-103 victory over the Rockets on Monday night. "What a huge win for us," Williams said. "Houston has been playing really, really well. For them to come into our building and put up a big-time fight and then for us to come out on top is a great feeling." With Utah clinging to a 101-98 lead, Williams stole James Hardens pass and raced down for a dunk with 2 minutes left. "Thankfully I was able to take advantage of a miscommunication on their part. It was a huge break for us," Williams said. Williams, who has been playing with a mask since breaking his nose last month, then hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 59 seconds to go to boost the lead to 108-100. "Gordon made a very, very unselfish play," Williams said. "I thought he was going to shoot it. He was really going and had been making plays all night for us. Im glad I stayed there and stayed ready." Rookie Trey Burke posted career highs of 21 points and six assists for Utah, which shot 54 per cent and made 10 of 17 from beyond the arc. The Jazz were coming off a 112-104 win over the Suns on Saturday Harden had 15 of his season-best 37 points in the fourth quarter to keep the Rockets close, but they couldnt get enough defensive stops. "We just didnt defend. We go through mental lapses where we dont lock down on the defensive end. We gave up too many points to fight our way back," Harden said. For a change, it was the Jazz making crucial plays at the end. "Were learning from the other games and not making the same mistakes twice," Hayward said. "Dont get me wrong, we still have a lot of improvement as a basketball team and as individuals, but its good to see we didnt let this one slip away like we did early in the year." Dwight Howard had 15 points and Francisco Garcia and Omri Casspi had 13 apiece as Houston lost for only the second time in its last 10 games. The Rockets have averaged 111 points on 51 per cent shooting during the stretch. Harden weaved through a trio of Jazz players and scored a crafty layup to tie the game at 86-all with 8:07 to play.dddddddddddd Alec Burks answered with a 3-pointer and the Jazz led the rest of the way. Burke started the season on the injured list with a broken finger but has found his rhythm in the past few games. His hot play has coincided with Utahs best stretch of the season as the Jazz have won three of four after dropping 14 of their first 15 games. "Its a matter of the players and coaches having confidence in me and just taking what the defence is giving me," Burke said. The Jazz put the ball in the rookies hands and let him make plays down the stretch. In the fourth quarter, Burke had seven points and six assists and marked a career-best in points for second straight game. Add in Haywards savvy all-court game and the Jazz finally look like a formidable team at times. "The greatest thing was (Hayward and Burke) made plays for their teammates," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. "They attacked and were able to get everybody involved and it threw (Houston) off a little bit." Hayward made 12 of 18 shots to regain his shooting confidence. His early hot streak sparked the Jazz to lead by as many as 14 points in the first half. Over the previous nine games, Hayward made just 36 of 123 attempts for 29 per cent. "I got going early by getting some easy buckets in transition and anytime you see the ball go through the hoop like that, it sets the tone," said Hayward, who had 17 points in the first quarter. The Jazz shot 59 per cent from 3-point range, while Houston hit 32 per cent (9 of 28) from beyond the arc. The two teams played here exactly one month ago when Chandler Parsons scored 24 points and the Rockets outscored the Jazz 64-37 in the second half to win 104-93. Parsons sat out this game with a sore back and the Rockets had only Harden and Aaron Brooks, who had 13 points, as playmakers in the fourth quarter. "We had plenty of guys to win this game today. It had nothing to do with who wasnt there," Houston coach Kevin McHale said. Since Burke recovered sufficiently to play starter minutes, the Jazz have reached 100 points in three games for the first time all season. Before this run, Utah only had one contest in which they topped the century mark. NOTES: Jeremy Lin missed his third game with a sprained and bruised right knee. … Houston was outscored 36-23 in the first quarter. … The Rockets had 54 points in the paint.
