BALTIMORE -- Right-hander Gavin Floyd had about 50 friends and relatives in attendance to watch him collect his 10th victory of the season in the White Sox' 4-3 win against the Orioles on Tuesday night.
Floyd (10-10), who is from Annapolis, Md., is 3-0 with a 2.28 ERA at Camden Yards. This wasn't one of his better starts with three runs allowed on seven hits but it was a quality effort that got the job done.
"I started out good and then they adjusted to what I was doing,'' said Floyd, who got dinged for three runs in the fifth inning. "I just had to make better pitches.''
Floyd twisted his right ankle in the seventh inning but said he was OK to pitch. But manager Ozzie Guillen went to his bullpen, anyway, and Floyd was done after allowing seven hits and one walk while striking out four.
The pen preserved the victory that brought the Sox to within a game of .500 and extended their win streak to five.
" Our bullpen has been pitching really well,'' Floyd said. "We've all thought our bullpen can do what they are doing now from the beginning. We have a really good bullpen, and I feel like our starters are really good too. And our lineup.
"Everything is hopefully coming together and go on a little run here.''
