OC Register: Angels’ offensive explosion extends Orioles’ losing streak to 19 games

Recommended Posts

As Joe Maddon was explaining on Tuesday afternoon how his team’s bats could have gone so silent over the weekend, he pointed out that it’s not always about the hitters.

“Sometimes it’s the pitchers’ fault,” the Angels manager said.

Hours later, as if to make the point, the Angels hitters took advantage of the hapless Orioles with a 14-8 victory in Baltimore.

It was a sharp contrast to scoring two runs in three losses to the Cleveland Indians, against top young pitchers Triston McKenzie and Cal Quantrill.

Instead, they were facing pitchers on a staff that has now lost 19 games in a row, the longest such losing streak in the majors since 2005.

The Angels pounded Orioles right-hander Spenser Watkins for eight runs in two-plus innings, and then they tacked on five more against Konner Wade.

They led 13-2 by the fourth inning, and at that point, every starter had reached base at least once, and seven of them had been on base at least twice.

Brandon Marsh drove in runs with each of his first two hits, on the way to a four-hit night.

Jo Adell already had a season-high four RBIs, including two on the first triple of his career.

Juan Lagares blasted a two-run home run.

All of it made for a fun night for hitters who had done so little over the weekend – since the All-Star break, really – and it gave the pitchers room for error on a night that they needed it.

Dylan Bundy made the start against his former team, but he didn’t even make it out of the second inning.

Handed a 5-1 lead in the second, Bundy loaded the bases on two walks and a hit batter and was yanked with one out.

Junior Guerra and Andrew Wantz followed Bundy allowed the Orioles to get back in the game. Guerra was charged with four runs and Wantz with three.

Although the Orioles cut the deficit to five runs, Austin Warren, Steve Cishek and Raisel Iglesias then collaborated on the final 11 outs without another run scoring.
