. Penalty kills, it doesnt matter how

BALTIMORE -- As poorly as they played for the first seven innings, it seemed hard to imagine the Baltimore Orioles would be celebrating an uplifting victory well after midnight. Then again, strange things happen when the Chicago White Sox are involved. Nelson Cruz hit a game-tying grand slam in the eighth inning and David Lough scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the 12th to give the Orioles a 5-4 victory Wednesday night. Nick Markakis had four hits for the Orioles, who won two of three from Chicago -- twice in their last at-bat. "Its big," Lough said. "Thats our second walk-off win against these guys. Theyre a good team. Give credit to them and their pitching staff for holding us." The Orioles didnt get a runner past first base against White Sox starter Hector Noesi until the seventh inning and trailed 4-0 entering the eighth. Noesi was pulled after giving up two straight singles, and Scott Downs walked Chris Davis to load the bases with two outs. Chicago manager Robin Ventura summoned Javy Guerra, the fourth pitcher of the inning, to face Cruz. On a 2-1 pitch, Cruz launched an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the wall in right field. It was his 24th home run, the second grand slam of the season and eighth of his career. "I had the chance to do some damage in a couple of at-bats before then, but I grounded into a double play twice," Cruz said. "It feels good to get the home run to tie the game." Said Lough: "Thats a big-time clutch hit right there, as big as it gets. Thats who we want at the plate, because he leads this team. You see what hes capable of doing and the numbers hes put up. Hes a special player." Neither team threatened before the grounds crew came with the tarp as soon as the ninth inning ended. Rain delayed the start of the 10th for 69 minutes. Nick Hundley opened the bottom of the 12th with a walk off Daniel Webb (4-2) and Lough entered as a pinch-runner. Lough took third on a single by Markakis and scored easily when Webb uncorked a pitch that got past catcher Tyler Flowers. "Its tough to lose like that," Ventura said. "Hector threw a great game, but we couldnt hold onto it. Weve got to be able to be better at the end." Tommy Hunter (2-1) got the final out in the Chicago 12th to earn the win. "It didnt look like it was a 4-4 game or it ended up being 5-4 in the first seven innings," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Eight innings. Whatever it was. It seems like yesterday. It was yesterday." Jose Abreu hit his 23rd home run for the White Sox, Adam Eaton tied a career high with four hits and Flowers drove in two runs. Abreu has four homers and 10 RBIs during his current 10-game hitting streak. None of it mattered. "The way we played, we should have (won), but the baseball gods must be upset with us in some way, shape, or form," Eaton said. Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander left the mound in danger of absorbing his ninth loss, but Cruzs slam took Jimenez off the hook. Until Cruz connected, Noesi and the White Sox dominated. Abreu provided Chicago a 1-0 lead by hitting the first pitch of the fourth inning into the seats in left. In the fifth, Alejandro De Aza drew a leadoff walk and scored on a triple by Eaton. The Orioles pulled the infield in, and that resulted in Eaton being thrown out at the plate on a grounder to third. Flowers hit a two-run single in the seventh to make it 4-0. That seemingly provided a bit of breathing room for the White Sox, whose previous seven games were decided by two runs or fewer. Unfortunately for Chicago, the lead didnt hold up. "That was my fault, I put this game on myself," Guerra said. "I have to be better in that situation, no matter what. I need to understand the situation. I feel bad for the team in general because I know I let everyone down." NOTES: Baltimore is off Thursday. Chicago sends Scott Carroll to the mound in the opener of a four-game series against host Toronto. ... Orioles RHP Bud Norris (strained groin) was supposed to pitch in Fridays split doubleheader against Tampa Bay. Chris Tillman will start instead, and Norris might not pitch again until Tuesday. He was expected to have an MRI on Thursday, Showalter said. ... Eaton has reached base in 20 straight games and owns a career-best 12-game hitting streak.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Joe Pavelski was happy with the San Jose Sharks power-play production even if it lacked artistic value. Pavelski scored two power-play goals, and the Sharks ended a four-game losing streak by beating the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Thursday night. Tomas Hertl also scored on the power play for the Sharks, who earned their first regulation victory at home since Nov. 29. Antti Niemi stopped 28 shots to record his 17th victory. "Its doing better," Pavelski said of the power play. "We found a work ethic. Its not exactly pretty, but we got more shots off and got some pucks back." Jonas Brodin scored for the Wild, who lost their fifth straight on the road. Niklas Backstrom made 36 saves. "Thats not the way you want to start a game," Wild forward Jason Pominville said. "Theyve drawn the most penalties in the league, and they showed it tonight. We put ourselves behind the eight ball, and its tough to come back when teams have leads." Backstrom fell to 1-9-1 in San Jose, and his 3.68 goals-against-average there is his second worst in any arena. The Sharks went 3 for 7 on the power play after going 0 for 4 in a 3-1 loss to the Wild on Sunday. They scored four times in their previous 39 power plays. "We went through a stretch where we were losing some games, and the power play was the reason we werent winning," Sharks centre Logan Couture said. "Now were starting to score some goals, and its good to see." San Jose took a 1-0 lead just 5:54 into the game. Pavelski got the puck from Dan Boyle on the left side and bounced a shot past Backstrom and into the net. "It must be nice to draw penalties like that," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "The other team goes stick on puck and just kind of holds their head. The first penalty . . . to me, that was embarrassing. I guess we have to ask our players to embellish more." The Sharks added another power-play goal with 5:17 left in the first. Tommy Wingels drove down the right side, drawwing the defence toward him, before dropping the puck off for Hertl, who had a clear shot into the net.dddddddddddd "This is why Im upset," Yeo said. "Our guys battled hard. We didnt do enough, theres no question. We were in the box too much. We didnt finish well enough. Penalty kills, it doesnt matter how many times they dive or embellish, we have to make sure we kill them off." During their four-game slide, the Sharks gave up a pair of two-goal leads, including Tuesdays shootout loss to the New York Islanders. Pavelski made it 3-0 at 3:42 of the second period on another power play. Matt Irwins shot bounced free, and Pavelski was there to drive it home. "Even 3-0 is not safe," Niemi said. "We had to stay on our toes, get some offence, and play hard on both ends." Joe Thorntons second assist of the game put him in sole possession of 26th place on the NHL career list with 816. "That third goal was big for us," Pavelski said. "It gave us that cushion we havent been able to get lately." Brodin scored with 7:24 remaining to bring the Wild within 3-1. His shot hit Sharks defenceman Brad Stuart and caromed past Niemi. "Obviously, he wasnt trying to do that," Couture said. "It was knuckling and I didnt have my eyes up to see it. We still saw a couple of Niemi highlight saves." Ryan Suter recorded an assist for the second straight game after going the previous eight without one. NOTES: The Wild recalled F Brett Bulmer from the Iowa Wild. ... The Sharks held their opponent scoreless in the first period for the sixth straight game. ... The Wild dropped to 1-8 in their last nine games in San Jose. ... Thornton moved into a tie for 49th place on the NHL career points list with Michel Goulet with 1,152 points. ... Pavelski has 11 goals in 17 games against the Wild. ... Sharks D Scott Hannan missed his second game because of an upper-body injury. ... The Wild have allowed the first goal in eight consecutive road games.
