BALTIMORE (AP) -- Down by a run in the 14th inning, Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen called for a bunt to put the tying run in scoring position.
Strange thing was, the White Sox were playing the role of the home team in Baltimore.
With the score 3-all in the finale of a four-game series in Chicago, play was stopped with the infield unplayable. It was the Orioles' final scheduled visit, so baseball officials ruled that the game would be completed in Baltimore.
"I tried to bunt just to tie the game on the visitor's side. That's kind of [weird]," Guillen said. "I've never seen anything like that and hopefully we never see that again. Especially when you lose ... a game when you wait this long."
The White Sox loaded the bases with two outs in the 14th after Orioles manager Dave Trembley ordered an intentional walk to pinch-hitter Ken Griffey Jr., even though it put the potential winning run in scoring position.
"The guy's going into the Hall of Fame," Trembley reasoned.
The strategy paid off when pinch-hitter Jermaine Dye popped out.
Nick Markakis led off the 14th with a single off Horacio Ramirez (1-3). After a single by Kevin Millar, a sacrifice and an intentional walk loaded the bases, Montanez greeted D.J. Carrasco with a soft single to center.
Alberto Castillo (1-0) got the final out in the 13th to earn his first major league victory, and Cherry picked up his first big league save.
Neither Castillo nor Cherry was on Baltimore's roster when the game began in April.
When play resumed Monday, the White Sox took the field as the home team to a smattering of cheers from Chicago fans in the small crowd.
Lance Cormier, who started the 12th for the Orioles, was playing for Triple-A Norfolk in April. The White Sox went with Ramirez, who was in Kansas City's minor league system when the game began.
Both rosters changed significantly since the day the game started. Both managers were allowed to insert newcomers into the lineup, but those removed from play were not allowed to return. For instance, Baltimore was forced to play without Aubrey Huff, who was ejected in the 10th inning for arguing a play at first base.
The Orioles resumed the game with no bench players because Alex Cintron replaced Huff at DH, Juan Castro took over for departed shortstop Brandon Fahey, and Montanez subbed for center fielder Adam Jones, who is on the disabled list.
Chicago activated 3B Joe Crede from the DL before the game and he took his original place in the lineup. ... The last road team to hit in the bottom of an inning was Cleveland on Sept. 26, 2007, in the first game of a doubleheader at Seattle. That was the last of four games to be made up from an April series in Cleveland that was snowed out.
