Matusz sharp for 7 innings, Roberts homers as Orioles beat White Sox 4-2

Brian Matusz pitched seven impressive innings and Brian Roberts homered as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Matt Wieters doubled and drove in two runs for the Orioles.

Mark Buehrle (12-10) was wilder than usual, and the White Sox lost for the 11th time in 16 games. Their lone run off Matusz came on a solo homer by Gordon Beckham in the sixth.

With two outs in the Chicago ninth, Paul Konerko singled and Carlos Quentin tripled. Koji Uehara rebounded by striking out A.J. Pierzynski for his second save of the season.
