Orioles (8-20) @ Angels (16-12)

The Orioles - who are 8-21, just as they were in 2010 - had one hit through eight innings in the series opener Tuesday, but scored two runs in the ninth to tie the score 2-2, only to lose on a walk-off single by Justin Upton in the bottom half of the inning. "If it doesn't happen (Thursday), it's going to happen soon".

The Baltimore Orioles are off to their worst start since 2010 and they'll try to turn things around Wednesday night at the Los Angeles Angels. Perez did well at first for the Angels winning the starting catching job halfway through the 2015 season, but he never could recapture his early success the next two seasons and was traded just before the 2018 season started.

Alex Cobb pitched six solid innings of seven-hit ball for Baltimore, but the Angels abruptly opened the scoring after Andrelton Simmons' two-out double in the sixth. Richards didn't give up a home run to the Bronx Bombers, but did walk three people, helping lead to his demise.

"He just elevated his pitches, and we didn't help him in a couple of instances", Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said.

Mike Trout, you are ridiculous.


Orioles: To make room for Trumbo's healthy return, Baltimore sent OF Joey Rickard back to Triple-A Norfolk.

As it wasn't hard enough to back the Baltimore Orioles as it is, they're throwing out Tillman, who is coming off an impressive performance against the Detroit Tigers, but he's still allowed 19 runs in 24.1 innings and is allowing a.316 batting average. The 23-year-old Venezuelan then walked and scored his first career run in the eighth.

Pujols is 4-for-15 with two doubles, two RBIs and a strikeout against Thursday's starter, right-hander Chris Tillman. The Gold Glove catcher was in an 0-for-34 slump before the series.

Martin Maldonado started the ninth-inning rally with a one-out single, his third hit of the night, off Orioles reliever Brad Brach. Sisco said he has a facial bruise, but no concussion symptoms.

The 23-year-old went 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA in four games as a pitcher, including one in which he took a ideal game into the seventh inning. However, they have won five of Heaney's last seven home starts against a team with a losing record.
