Los Angeles lost for the ninth time in 12 games and could possibly drop below .500 for the first time since June 2.  The game also marked the move of Torii Hunter going from his regular position of center field to right.  “It was different, but I was still in the game in the outfield,” Hunter said.  The Angels have been unable to collect back-to-back victories since June 16-17 and are 7-10 since the All-Star break.  Los Angeles is an even 1-1 this month (-20) and is 33-26 in August the past three years (-420).  The club will be a road favorite of -125 to -150 for just the fourth time this year (1-2, -170), but has excelled in his role the past three seasons, producing a 29-16 record (+620).  Despite the 6-3 loss in the series opener, the team is 10-4 in their last 14 games in Baltimore.

Baltimore came into this weekend with a season series advantage over the Boston Red Sox, but that is no longer due to back-to-back losses.  The Orioles have made nine errors in their past five games that has caused frustration to set in.  “We didn’t play defensively like a big league team,” outfielder Nick Markakis said.  The team stands at a terrible 8-31 on the road this season (-1,790) with the total being 14-24-1 (O/U) in those games.  Dropping the first three games of July is nothing new for the last place team in the AL East division, going 19-35 in the month the last three years (-1,330).  The offense  is averaging just 3.1 runs per game on the road this season and has had a major problem in providing any support to today’s starter.  In eight of Brian Matusz’ 16 starts this year, the Orioles have scored one run or been shut out while he was in the game.

Baltimore catcher and prodigy Matt Wieters came into the league with a tremendous amount of hype this spring. It certainly hasn’t taken him long to justify it. His first full month in the league – June – was a bit rocky. By July, though, he had figured things out in a big way. He hit .323 on the month, and he had a decent OPS of .767. More amazing than the numbers, Wieters has quickly started to look comfortable and confident. It’s not at all hard to believe that he’s the real deal.
