Then in that eight-run eighth, De Aza hit two doubles, with his second being a two-run double to score Jonathan Schoop and Nick Markakis.

De Aza didn’t have much consistent success in his tenure with the White Sox, as they traded him to the O’s on Aug. 30 for minor leaguers Mark Blackmar and Miguel Chalas.

This season, in a combined effort with the White Sox and the O’s, De Aza batted .252 in 142 games, 122 with the White Sox. Of De Aza’s eight home runs this season, three were with the O’s in the final 20 games of the season.

Baltimore leads the ALDS over the AL Central champions, 1-0, and will play again on Friday at noon ET on TBS.
