Orioles Lose Strop struggles as Os lose to Angels 9 5BALTIMORE — The Angels scored six runs in the seventh inning on Wednesday at Camden Yards to surge ahead of the Orioles and avoid a three-game sweep.

Erick Aybar punctuated the rally with a bases-clearing triple to the right-center field gap off reliever Pedro Strop. Aybar scored on the play when Ryan Flaherty’s relay throw scooted away from the third baseman Manny Machado. That sequence flipped a two-run Orioles lead into a 6-4 deficit, and the Angels cruised to a 9-5 win.

Strop took the loss after a rough outing in relief of starter Jason Hammel. Hammel pitched into the seventh inning, and gave up four earned runs on seven hits. Strop left to a chorus of boos from the announced crowd of 25,964, having given up four earned runs and recording just one out.
