Davidson's slam leads White Sox past Orioles 6-1
(CHICAGO) - Like many young power hitters, Matt Davidson's focus at the plate is not to get himself out. The rookie definitely was in the zone on Tuesday night. Davidson hit his first career grand slam, Derek Holland scattered eight hits over six innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-1. Jose Abreu went 3 for 4 and Avisail Garcia had a two-run double as Chicago won its second straight after dropping nine of 11. Davidson leads the White Sox with 12 homers in 163 at-bats. Manny Machado had an RBI-single for the Orioles, who dropped to 31-32 with the loss, the first time they've been under .500 since Oct. 3, 2015. Holland (5-6) faced trouble in every inning, but managed to give up just one run. Baltimore starter Alec Asher (2-5) allowed six runs and six hits in five-plus innings following a fast start. The Orioles seemed poised to answer in the fifth, but Holland worked out of a jam, runners on first and third with no outs, by getting Machado to pop up to second and cleanup hitter Mark Trumbo to bounce into a double play.
