Lew Ford went into Monday's series opener against the White Sox having not hit a major league home run since July 29, 2007.
Since he joined the Orioles on July 29, Ford has played sparingly. But he's making the most of his starts the past two nights as the DH against left-handed White Sox starters.
On Monday, Ford started for this second time since Aug. 12, and he hit a second-inning solo homer off Francisco Liriano in the Orioles' 4-3 comeback win. It was his first big league homer in more than five years.
