Angels beat O's on bases-loaded walk

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Kole Calhoun drew a bases-loaded walk from reliever Brian Matusz in the eighth inning after a tying RBI double by Erick Aybar, and the Los Angeles Angels pulled out a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

Jered Weaver (11-6) allowed two runs and six hits through eight innings, striking out six and walking none before the Angels recorded their major league-best 31st come-from-behind win. The right-hander won his fourth straight decision.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman allowed a run and five hits over six innings, stranded seven runners in scoring position and picked off another at second base before handing a 2-1 lead to Tommy Hunter.

Josh Hamilton led off the eighth with a bloop single off Hunter (2-2) and came all the way around on Aybar's double to left-center. A two-out intentional walk to Efren Navarro and another walk to Chris Iannetta loaded the bases for Calhoun, who walked on a 3-1 pitch.

The Angels, who came in leading the majors in runs scored, stranded two runners in scoring position in the first, fifth and sixth innings. The Angels were 0 for 12 in those situations Wednesday, and 3 for 25 during the three-game series.

Huston Street pitched a hitless ninth for his first save since joining the Angels last Friday in a trade with the San Diego Padres.

Baltimore took a 2-1 lead in the sixth when David Lough singled with two outs, stole second and scored on Adam Jones' flare to short right field. Eight of the Orioles' 10 runs in the series came with two outs.

Ryan Flaherty, starting at third base for the second straight game because of Manny Machado's stiff back, made a diving backhanded stop of Mike Trout's first-inning grounder behind the bag but couldn't get the throw to first in time. Trout scored on Albert Pujols' single high off the 18-foot wall in right-center.

The Orioles tied it in the third on a two-out RBI single by Nick Markakis after Flaherty hit a ground-rule double and tagged up on Nick Hundley's fly ball.

NOTES: Pujols' cousin, former major league catcher and coach Luis Pujols, currently manages the Orioles' Single-A Carolina League farm club in Frederick, Maryland. ... This was the eighth time in Tillman's last 11 starts that the Orioles failed to score more than two runs while he was in the game. ... Tillman's 32 victories since July 4, 2012 are the second-most in the majors behind reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer whom the Angels are scheduled to face Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series with Detroit. ... The Angels placed OF Grant Green on the 15-day DL, retroactive to July 21, because of a back strain and recalled 1B/OF C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake. ... Hamilton hasn't homered in his last 17 games and 68 at_bats since July 2 at Chicago. His last one at the ''Big A'' was on Aug. 18, 2013 - a drought of 41 games and 164 at_bats.
