    CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Paul Konerko showed signs of breaking out of his month-long slump.

    Batting just .065 in May, Konerko drove in five runs with a single in the first inning and a homer in the sixth as the Chicago White Sox rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles and a split of their doubleheader.

    The Orioles won the opener, 1-0, behind rookie Daniel Cabrera, who allowed two hits in six innings in his major league debut.

    Konerko's blast came moments before a 93-minute rain delay. He had just two hits in 31 at-bats this month, but his first-inning single staked Chicago to a 3-0 lead.

    Felix Diaz, recalled from Class AAA Charlotte to start the nightcap for the White Sox, gave up home runs to Rafael Palmeiro, Luis Matos, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Melvin Mora as the Orioles rallied for a 5-3 lead.

    After the White Sox got their first two runners on in the sixth, Joe Crede forced Magglio Ordonez at third with a failed bunt attempt.

    But with the rain intensifying, Konerko drilled an 0-2 pitch from Orioles starter Erik Bedard (0-1) over the left field wall, putting Chicago ahead, 6-5.

    Mike Jackson (2-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of Diaz to get the win. Billy Koch pitched the ninth for his sixth save.
