BALTIMORE, April 16 (UPI) -- Jose Contreras allowed four hits over seven innings Wednesday in carrying the Chicago White Sox past Baltimore 3-1.

Chicago won its fifth straight road game.

Jim Thome hit a three-run homer in the first inning and Contreras (1-1) protected the lead by striking out six and walking no one. Bobby Jenks worked a perfect ninth for his sixth save.

Thome's homer came off Adam Loewen (0-1), who walked five and gave up six hits in six innings.

Baltimore was held to a season-low five hits.

Nick Swisher opened the game with a single to right and Orlando Cabrera then drew a walk. Thome followed by hitting a 1-2 pitch over the fence in right-center for his third homer of the season.

The White Sox opened a five-game road trip.
