Orioles take 4-game slide into matchup with Angels

Mike Trout hits home run for young fan for second straight year in Angels' win

Mike Trout hits home run for young fan for second straight year in Angels' win

"He's still developing, which is cool and impressive and what we're looking for from our young players - not only (to) have results but to improve over the course of the year", Orioles manager Brandon Hyde told MLB.com. He returned to the batting order on Tuesday following elbow surgery. He gave up four runs on five hits in 4 2/3 innings and struck out six but walked four and allowed three homers.

In the ninth inning, with a runner on second, Ohtani swung at a breaking ball to get a hit to the right, adding another run for the team. The 33-year-old, in the fourth season of a $161 million, seven-year contract, is batting.290 (18 for 62) with five home runs and 17 RBIs since stopping a record 0-for-54 skid on April 13.

When 7-year-old Gavin Edelson met the Angels star Friday about 90 minutes before the first pitch vs. the Orioles, he had one simple request for Trout. "You can't make a mistake to him and I missed my spot on both pitches", Bundy lamented. According to the website, Trout responded by saying: "I need to hit a home run tonight".

Los Angeles starter Griffin Canning (1-1) lost for the time in the major leagues in his third start.

TOP PERFORMERS: Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 19 extra base hits and is batting.324.

"I feel good about it, but I definitely wasn't on", Means said.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney, sidelined since early March due to elbow inflammation, was scheduled to throw on Friday against hitters in an extended spring training game in Arizona.

Willson Contreras hit a walk-off home run in the 15th inning to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 2-1 win over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday afternoon.

The Orioles will look to stop a four-game losing streak as John Means (4-3, 2.48) starts the finale.
