Scott Feldman isn’t used to pitching complete games let alone shutouts. The Orioles aren’t used to seeing them either.

On Friday night Feldman threw the first Orioles complete game since June 16 2012 and his first-ever shutout.

He threw 106 pitches allowing just five hits and walk striking out three as the Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 4-0 before 26253 at Oriole Park.

The 30-year-old Feldman who the Orioles acquired from the Cubs on July 2 had just one complete games in 126 major league starts and that came on May 1. He said he hadn’t pitched one since college.

“I definitely wanted it but the big thing this time of the year – it doesn’t matter how many innings you go – it matters who wins the game. All that other stuff is great but we won the game. We won the first two and hopefully we can keep playing well” Feldman said.

Feldman (5-4) pitched the Orioles (75-65) to their second straight win against the sad-sack White Sox (56-84) who have lost eight straight.

“He had command of all his pitches. He'd get ahead in the count. I don't think he ever got in a pattern” manager Buck Showalter said.

The Orioles were the last major league team this season to throw a complete game.

When the ninth inning began Showalter had Jim Johnson and Brian Matusz warming in the bullpen but Feldman methodically retired Chicago in the ninth.

“I think they all swung at the first or second pitch. It was one of those nights when they hit the ball in the air it seemed like it was at guys or they were able to run it down and make nice plays” Feldman said.

It was the first Orioles shutout since Chris Tillman Tommy Hunter and Johnson combined for one on July 26 and the first complete game since Jason Hammel’s one-hitter last season.

For the second straight night the Orioles hit three home runs. Danny Valencia Chris Davis and Matt Wieters hit solo shots. Davis hit his major league-leading 48th homer.

After John Danks (4-12) retired the first eight Orioles hitters Valencia hit his seventh home run of the year for the first run in the third.

In the fourth Jeff Keppinger singled with one out and tried to score on Paul Konerko’s two-out single. Adam Jones’ throw to plate was on target and Wieters tagged Keppinger out though replays indicated Keppinger may have been safe.

That ended up saving a shutout for Feldman (5-4) who retired his final eight batters and didn’t allow a hit over the last four innings.
