It was pretty apparent in the first inning that Orioles rookie starter Jake Arrieta didn't have his best stuff, and nothing has changed since.

Arrieta walked three in a 35-pitch first inning but gave up only the one run on Carlos Quentin's single into center. He had an easy nine-pitch second, but he just allowed two more runs in the third.

Paul Konerko connected for an RBI single and Alexei Ramirez did the same as the White Sox lead 3-0 after three. Arrieta has already thrown 70 pitches.

The Orioles just got their first hit off Edwin Jackson on Nick Markakis' infield single in the fourth. Jackson fanned five of the first seven hitters he faced.

UPDATE: Arrieta just gave way to Rick VandenHurk to start the fifth. Arrieta allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks. He also mixed in a throwing error that contributed to Chicago's scoring a run in the fourth to take a 4-0 lead.
