ANAHEIM, Calif. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . —For Baltimore
Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the best seat in the house was right in front of
the television in the visiting clubhouse. Nick Markakis hit a two-run single in
the eighth inning and a run-scoring single in the 10th to help the Orioles beat
the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Sunday, after Showalter was ejected in the sixth
for arguing balls and strikes. “Those were big hits by Nicky with a lot of
adversity there,” Showalter said. “I mean, I could feel the players and the
teams anxiety by what was going on out on the field. It shows we can certainly
win without me around.” Angels right-hander Dan Haren threw 73 of his 115
pitches for strikes, several of which didnt sit well with Showalter, who was run
by umpire Angel Campos after Markakis fell behind 0-1 in the count. Markakis
eventually was called out on strikes to end the sixth. “That was a fastball down
and in, and it got a lot of the plate,” Haren said. “(Showalter) was upset about
the first pitch, but it caught the corner away. I heard him chirping from the
dugout, and I knew he was going to get tossed when he came out.” Showalters
ejection was the 20th of his career and first this season. “When you share your
players frustration, you can feel it in the dugout,” Showalter said after the
Orioles avoided a three-game sweep. “I mean, there was so much focus on the
strike zone, it was taking away from the competition. And when you have the
number of people we had complaining that dont ever complain, sometimes you have
to take that bullet.” Angels reliever LaTroy Hawkins (0-1) came on in the 10th
and immediately walked to No. 9 hitter Robert Andino, who advanced on a
sacrifice by Endy Chavez and a groundout by J.J. Hardy. Markakis then grounded a
hard single up the middle that deflected off the glove of second baseman Howie
Kendrick and into centre field. “I feel like Im comfortable at the plate, but
things just werent coming,” Markakis said. “But its a long season and its still
early. So youve just got to go out there with the same attitude and dont let
things bother you, whatever it is. And if you do that, this game will reward
you.” Pedro Strop (2-1) pitched two innings for the win despite allowing a tying
solo homer in the eighth by Kendrick. Jim Johnson got three outs for his seventh
save. Haren was charged with two runs and six hits over 7 1-3 innings and struck
out eight in his fourth start. The three-time All-Star, still looking for his
first victory, took a 1-0 lead into the eighth before giving up one-out singles
by pinch-hitter Matt Wieters and Andino. Chavez greeted lefty Scott Downs with a
bloop single on an 0-2 pitch, loading the bases, before Downs turned Hardys
comebacker into a force at the plate. But the left-hander fell behind Markakis
2-0 and Markakis put the Orioles ahead 2-1 with a two-run single through the
left side of the infield—his first two RBIs in a span of 37 at-bats. “Nicks
been sick as a dog the last two days,” Showalter said. “During BP yesterday, I
was an eraser away from changing the lineup—and Im sure he didnt feel a whole
lot better today. He wouldnt let us take his temperature, hardly, and hes been
scuffling. A lot of guys would have bailed, but thats Nick Markakis. Hed be in
there whether or not he played for an organization that Cal Ripken played for.”
Kendrick pulled the Angels even in the bottom half with his one-out
opposite-field homer to right, the first by the Angels in a span of 42 innings
and just their second home run in 58 innings. It also ended a string of 36
straight homerless innings by Baltimore pitchers. Wei-Yin Chen held the Angels
to a run and five hits over 6 1-3 innings and struck out five in his third major
league start. The Taiwanese left-hander was lifted by bench coach John Russell
after giving up a pair of one-out walks. “Were still learning about him,”
Showalter said. “Today the command was the thing. And quite frankly, he didnt
get the benefit of a lot of borderline calls like Haren was getting, but he
worked his way through that. When youre facing a guy like Haren with the strike
zone that hes working with, youre going to have to be really good. And he was.”
Albert Pujols was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts and remained homerless in his 16
games and 65 at-bats, the longest drought from the start of a season in his
12-year career. He started as the designated hitter for the first time since
joining the Angels. NOTES: Pujols is 18 for 54 with four homers and 12 RBIs in
13 career games as a DH, including 12 interleague contests with the St. Louis
Cardinals. ... The Orioles finished their road trip 6-4, marking the first time
that won more than they lost during a 10-game trip since September 2004. Wholesale NBA
