Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) – Scott Feldman fired his first career shutout
and Chris Davis clubbed his league-leading 48th home run of the season, as the
Baltimore Orioles blanked the Chicago White Sox, 4-0, Friday in the second
tilt of a four-game set at Camden Yards.

Feldman (5-4) scattered five hits and a walk while striking out three over an
efficient 106-pitch outing to record his second career complete game and pick
up his third win in his last four starts.

Davis and Matt Wieters belted back-to-back blasts in the sixth, while Danny
Valencia stroked a solo homer in the third and added an RBI single in the
fifth for the Orioles, who have won two straight and four of their last six
games to remain in the thick of the AL Wild Card race.

Baltimore now sits just 2 1/2 games back of Tampa Bay for the final Wild Card
spot, pending the Rays’ result in Seattle later on Friday.

Chicago starter John Danks (4-12) surrendered all four runs on seven hits and
a walk over 5 1/3 frames to absorb the loss.

Jeff Keppinger and Paul Konerko combined for four of Chicago’s five hits, as
the White Sox lost their eighth straight game.
