(Newser) – Adam Jones singled in the game-winning run in the 10th inning, capping a late comeback that gave the Baltimore Orioles a 6-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox tonight. Baltimore trailed 5-2 in the eighth before rallying to split the two-game series. Nick Markakis homered for the Orioles, while Carlos Quentin hit two for the Chi Sox and Joe Crede hit one.

George Sherrill (1-0) pitched the 10th to earn his first AL win. Baltimore trailed 5-3 in the ninth when closer Bobby Jenks entered, looking to go 7-for-7 in save situations. After Brian Roberts hit a two-out RBI double, Melvin Mora grounded a 3-2 pitch up the middle to tie it. Of Jenks' 13 career blown saves, three have come at Camden Yards.
