Rookie Griffin Canning burned by long ball in Angels’ loss to Orioles

In his fourth game since returning from elbow surgery, Angels DH Shohei Ohtani went 0 for 5 and struck out twice.

If the Angels scored eight runs, there's a pretty good chance Mike Trout had something to do with it, and sure enough he clocked a two-run home run in the third inning Friday night.

Seven-year-old Baltimore native Gavin Edelson met Trout last season when the youngster was carrying a sign that read "Mike Trout is my idol", and two hit it off.

The surging Angels have won 10 of 14 games after Saturday's 7-2 win. "I was just lucky that I could throw my changeup and slider for strikes".

On Saturday, the Orioles got a two-run homer from Dwight Smith Jr.in the first inning against Harvey, but then proceeded to strand 10 runners, going 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Los Angeles pulled even against Dan Straily (1-3) in the second on an RBI triple by Kole Calhoun. Luke Bard (1-1) followed with 1 2/3 scoreless innings.

Meanwhile, the Orioles are 0-4 in the last four Sunday games and 18-45 in the last 63 in game three of a series.

Save for the handful of mistakes that contributed to his first loss, Canning is as good as advertised so far with the Angels.

"If I get a little better, I'll probably get (extra-base hits)".

We've only been able to see Canning a couple of times this year, but overall he's been solid with a total of five earned runs in two starts.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney (left elbow inflammation) is expected to make the second of three planned rehab starts in the next few days.

Orioles: Dylan Bundy (1-4, 5.30) tries to build on his last outing, when he pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Rookie John Means (5-3) allowed one run, four hits and three walks in six innings, throwing a season-high 110 pitches and lowering his ERA from 2.48 to 2.33.

The Angels are 8-11 on the road. Despite having four hits Friday night and owning a.390 lifetime batting average against Baltimore, Andrelton Simmons was rested until the eighth inning by Ausmus.
