GAME SUMMARY: Leading by a run entering the eighth, the Orioles failed in their attempt to sweep three games from the Los Angeles Angels.


The Orioles will begin the theoretical second half of the season 10 games over .500 for the second straight season.


BALTIMORE – The Orioles bullpen had been outstanding. In their previous eight games, they had given up just one run in 29 2/3 innings.

That would quickly change.


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Early in the season, the Orioles were pining for quality starts. On Monday, an Orioles starter delivered the team’s eighth consecutive quality start.
