Ubaldo Jimenez’s second pitch hit David DeJesus squarely in the hip, and the Baltimore starter immediately flashed back to his regrettable recent outings.
Kevin Gausman could hardly be faulted for giving up a homer to birthday boy Mike Trout.
Trout homered on his birthday for the third time in his career, and Chris Iannetta delivered a go-ahead, two-run double in the Los Angeles Angels’ 8-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.
Mike Wright took a three-hitter into the eighth inning of his major league debut, and the Baltimore Orioles ended the Los Angeles Angels’ five-game winning streak with a 3-0 victory Sunday.
Matt Shoemaker scattered three hits and allowed one run over seven innings, leading Los Angeles to a season-high five-game winning streak.
Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (1-2) had an effective outing for Baltimore overshadowed by Weaver. He allowed two runs and seven hits and tied a season high with seven strikeouts with a walk over seven innings. It was the fifth time this season that Chen allowed two runs or fewer and didn’t earn a victory.
Although the Orioles do have somewhat of a stronghold on first place, the AL central is much closer than Baltimore’s division.
“It could still go either way,” said Todd. “The Royals have a game and half on them, and Detroit has the better roster and they could still pull away with the division. But their rotation is shallow now. They might lose a couple due to that and it could be the difference.”
“Davis has had a very up and down career,” said Szymborski. “He’s hitting .200 or less of late, and it’s not really sustainable.”
Though many in Baltimore are a bit panicked after Machado’s injury, Szymborski points out that every team has injuries, and many also have far worse scenarios as a road to the playoffs.
Albert Pujols hit an RBI single in the 13th inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 Thursday night to avert a three-game series sweep.
For much of the first half of the season, the Baltimore Orioles were selective and cautious with their use of rookie Kevin Gausman.
The Baltimore Orioles have a knack for winning in extra innings, and it has nothing to do with luck.
