CHICAGO - The Orioles made their way west Thursday evening riding the momentum of having won their first two road series of the season, heading to Anaheim for the last leg on their three-city, 10-game road trip. Anyone who suggested the Orioles would leave winners of five of their first seven games of the trip would have be deemed optimistic, but their play away from Camden Yards over the past week has the team sitting pretty atop the American League East at 8-5. The Orioles' 5-3 win over the White Sox on Thursday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field gave them three wins in four games here on Chicago's South Side, before traveling to Anaheim for three games against the Angels.

Orioles pitcher Tommy Hunter is undoubtedly well-regarded by the club's organizational brass. Even though he's only 25, he's pitched in big games and played in the postseason while he was with the Rangers. He's a guy who the Orioles would like to be a part of their rotation for years to come. Hunter is not going to overwhelm batters with his stuff. Instead, he relies on his fastball command to work hitters. But over his past two starts, Hunter has struggled. In an eventual 7-5 win at Toronto last week, he allowed four homers, tying a career high.

Orioles left fielder and leadoff hitter Nolan Reimold attributes his recent offensive tear to making one small step forward. Literally. Reimold, who entered Wednesday's game against the White Sox with home runs in each of his last four games, said he's made a small adjustment at the plate that is helping him see the ball better. “I have been striding too far, and it was making my head move a little bit and I was pulling off,” Reimold said. “So I've been working on having a smaller stride.

Orioles right-hander Tommy Hunter grasped for answers after his team's 8-1 loss to the White Sox on Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.   The Orioles' run of success on the road - filled with late-inning dramatics, plenty of home runs and clutch pitching - came to a crashing halt Wednesday evening on Chicago's South Side. The Orioles, who entered the night 4-1 midway through their three-city, 10-game road trip, suffered their worst defeat on the road this season. Hunter struggled in his second consecutive start, allowing eight earned runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.

CHICAGO - Nolan Reimold admitted his uneasyness in stepping into the leadoff spot in the Orioles batting order - unsure how he'd be able to adapt in an unfamiliar role -- but over the past few games, he certainly seems more than comfortable there. Over his past four games, the 28-year-old Reimold has sparked the Orioles offense -- hitting home runs in each of those games -- his latest a two-run shot that broke a scoreless tie in the sixth and helped the Orioles to a 3-2 win over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he kept Nolan Reimold out of the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the White Sox partially as a precaution because the Orioles leftfield had been dealing with a nagging leg cramp. That seemed to be news to Reimold when the starting lineup was posted before Monday's game. But for the third time in this young season, Reimold managed to play a key role in the late innings -- this time in the Orioles' 10-4, 10-inning win. After coming in to Monday's game as a pinch hitter for Endy Chavez in the seventh, Reimold hit a solo homer to lead off the ninth off Chicago closer Hector Santiago, crushing a 95 mph full-count fastball over the left-field fence.

His throwing arm wrapped in a huge bag of ice, he and his Orioles teammates taken through a roller coaster of a night, catcher Matt Wieters put it perfectly. “This year nothing's really come easy so far,” he said. On a night when the Orioles nearly gift-wrapped a win to the White Sox on a chilly Chicago night at U.S. Cellular Field, frustration and elation merged within a matter of innings. The Orioles went into the eighth inning down three runs, unable to give starter Jake Arrieta the run support he deserved while committing three errors in the field.
