Angels Vs. Orioles: Ervin Santana Roughed Up In First Inning In 6-2 Loss

J.J. Hardy and Mark Reynolds each homered in a five-run first inning off Ervin Santana, as the Los Angeles Angels dropped their second straight game to the Baltimore Orioles, 6-2 at Camden Yards. If the Angels are going to overcome long odds to make the postseason, they will need to ride their big three of Jered Weaver, Dan Haren, and Santana, but if this weekend series is any indication, the trio might be out of gas.

Haren allowed seven runs and couldn't get out of the sixth inning on Friday, and Santana allowed five runs in the bottom of the first on Saturday. He ended up adding six scoreless innings onto that opening clunker, but the damage was already done.

The Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 7-6, and now lead the Angels by four and a half games in the American League West, with 11 games remaining.

Jered Weaver starts the series finale for the Halos on Sunday morning, pitching on three days rest, facing Alfredo Simon.
