Jarrett Hoffpauir reached on an error by left fielder Jonathan Tucker, who couldn’t hold onto a sinking liner, and Alex Gonzalez followed with a broken-bat single into center field.
Jeremy Reed struck out, Randy Ruiz popped to short and Brian Dopirak grounded to second.
Cesar Izturis led off the bottom of the first with a single into right field.
Meanwhile, the White Sox have released former Orioles pitcher Daniel Cabrera.

Somebody get the Long Island Ducks on the phone.
Update: Berken gave up a two-out triple to Chris “The Big” Lubanski, but nothing else. A strikeout and two ground balls. He’s looking good out there.
Berken has thrown 26 pitches, 21 for strikes.
