Los Angeles Angels
The Baltimore Orioles won’t get to the postseason this year, yet they could determine who does.
Everywhere else he’s managed in the big leagues, Buck Showalter took teams that had a losing record in his first full season with them and guided them to a winning record the following year.
Jerome Williams pitched seven stellar innings to get his first major league victory in almost six years, leading the Angels to a 7-1 victory over the Orioles and a sweep of the three-game series.
Adam Jones homered and drove in two runs to back an effective pitching performance by Brad Bergesen and lead the Baltimore Orioles over the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Saturday night.
Ervin Santana took a one-hitter into the eighth inning, Vernon Wells hit a grand slam in the ninth, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 on Friday night.
