Recap: Chicago WSox vs. Baltimore

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Adam Dunn's one-out homer in the bottom of the ninth inning sent Chicago past Baltimore, 3-2, in the rubber match of a three- game series.

Addison Reed (4-1) tossed a scoreless top of the ninth for the win.

"We're not going to give up and not give our all when we're out there. We're going to keep playing. our pitching has been real good and our hitting is real good right now. We just keep playing," Reed said.

Matt Wieters and Nick Markakis knocked in a run each for the Orioles, who had won four straight prior to arriving in Chicago's south side.
