Angels Vs. Orioles, Game 2 Final Score: Halos Secure First 2012 Series Win With 6-3 Victory

It took much longer than anyone would have expected, but the Los Angeles Angels have finally won a series in the 2012 regular season. They picked up their second win in as many nights over the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, as Jered Weaver was once again every bit the team ace in a 6-3 victory.

The Orioles struck first, with two runs in the top of the fifth inning on a Matt Wieters homer to go up 2-0. The lead was short-lived, as the Halos plated five runs in the bottom of the fifth. The five runs came on four RBI singles by Mark Trumbo, Erick Aybar, Bobby Abreu and Kendrys Morales as the Angels took a 5-2 lead.

The O's got one run back in the top of the seventh, as Wieters recorded an RBI groundout to bring home Adam Jones, but that would be as close as Baltimore would get. Torii Hunter answered back in kind in the bottom of the inning, grounding out to score Albert Pujols.

Weaver was again exceptional, pitching a complete game and allowing just five hits, three runs and no walks, while striking out five. He improves to 3-0 with the win.
