Erick Aybar had the game of his life on Sunday afternoon, leading the Los Angeles Angels to an 11-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of a three-game weekend series at Camden Yards. The shortstop hit two home runs and two doubles for the Halos, leading an 11-run, 15-hit attack to support Jered Weaver, who pitched six strong innings on three days rest for his 18th win.
For good measure, Aybar also walked once, and scored five runs on the afternoon. The five runs scored by Aybar tied an Angels franchise record, set by Tim Salmon on April 12, 1998. Howie Kendrick had three hits, including a double, and three RBI for the Angels. Vernon Wells added his 22nd home run of the season.
Weaver allowed two runs on six hits in his six innings of work. He walked one and struck out two to set a new career high in victories.
The Angles begin a three-game series in Toronto on Monday night, with Jerome Williams starting the opener. Ricky Romero starts for the Blue Jays.
