CHICAGO -- The Baltimore Orioles seem to enjoy playing behind right-hander Chris Tillman.The 28-year-old pitcher is slated to make his 24th start of the season Saturday night against the Chicago White Sox. Baltimore is 19-4 this season when Tillman takes the mound, including team victories in five of his last six outings.The steady wave of Tillman-related triumphs is a big reason why Baltimore (62-46) remains locked in a virtual tie with the Toronto Blue Jays for first place in the American League East. Tillman (14-3, 3.46 ERA) is two wins shy of matching his career high from 2013, and he has limited opponents to a .219 batting average since July 5.As the Orioles surge closer toward a postseason run, the White Sox (52-57) are sliding in the opposite direction. Chicago has lost seven of its past nine games and 15 of 22 after a 7-5 loss to Baltimore in Fridays series opener.The White Sox could welcome back rookie shortstop Tim Anderson, who left Thursdays game against the Tigers because of a bruised left hand and was not in the lineup Friday.Youre just a little concerned about him going out there and doing something that would jeopardize some other part of his body, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. Were going to let him rest a little bit and hopefully that (swelling) goes down and it feels better by (Saturday).White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon (2-8, 4.67 ERA) will look to snap his streak of eight straight starts without a win. Rodon doess not have a victory since May 22 against the Kansas City Royals.dddddddddddd He is 0-2 with a 4.85 ERA in three appearances (two starts) against the Orioles during his career.Rodon will have his hands full against one of the top-hitting teams in the league.Baltimore leads the majors this season with 163 home runs. The team boasts the top long-ball hitter in the game (Mark Trumbo, 31 home runs), not to mention two corner infielders with mammoth power (Chris Davis and Manny Machado, 22 home runs apiece).Yet the Orioles latest thunder bat does not belong to Trumbo, Davis or Machado. Look instead to Pedro Alvarez, who clubbed two home runs in Fridays series-opening win and has five in his past three games.Alvarezs first blast traveled 415 feet over the center-field wall. His next one soared even farther -- 451 feet.The left-handed hitter has 18 home runs for Baltimore after hitting 27 home runs last season with Pittsburgh.I just think you can tell hes in a good place, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Hes seeing the ball well. Hes sitting on some pitches that he wasnt, and when hes getting his pitch, hes not missing it.Hes as strong as anybody weve got. ... Took him a little while to get going, but some of thats not his fault. Hes coming to a new league, new pitchers, there was a lot of different things going on. ' ' '
