Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Cesar Izturis' single in the bottom of the ninth drove in the game-winning run, as the Baltimore Orioles edged the Angels, 5-4, to complete a three-game sweep at Camden Yards.
Francisco Rodriguez (0-3) started on the mound for Los Angeles in the ninth. Matt Wieters led off with a double into the gap in left-center field, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on Izturis' base hit up the middle to give the Orioles their first sweep of the Angels since taking four consecutive meetings in Anaheim from July 17-20, 2003.
Dan Haren, making his third start for LA, allowed four runs on 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings.
Trailing 4-0, Los Angeles plated four runs in the eighth to tie the game. Pinch-hitter Reggie Willits singled and moved to second on Erick Aybar's one- out walk. Runners were on the corners after Maicer Izturis grounded into a fielder's choice. Mike Gonzalez then took over for Arrieta on the mound. He faced just one batter, though, giving up an RBI single to Abreu. Berken came in from the bullpen and offered up a three-run homer to Hunter.
Berken worked around a one-out single in the top of the ninth.
Los Angeles put two men on base in the top of the sixth. With one out, Peter Bourjos walked and Aybar reached first on second baseman Roberts' fielding error. Arrieta, though, retired the next two batters to keep LA off the board.
Baltimore finally gave Arrieta some run support in the home sixth. Markakis led off the inning with a homer over the wall in right-center field. Adam Jones hit a double later in the frame and crossed the plate on Pie's single to make it 2-0.
The O's added two more runs in the seventh to go ahead by four. Corey Patterson led off with a single and scored on Roberts' double to right. Roberts advanced to third on Hunter's fielding error. Kevin Jepsen took over on the mound and Markakis greeted him with an RBI single.
