Recap

Orioles 3, Angels 2 (10): Nick Markakis drove in all three runs, including an RBI single in the 10th, as visiting Baltimore avoided a three-game sweep.

Markakis also had a two-run single in the eighth to erase a 1-0 deficit and help the Orioles finish 6-4 on their 10-game road trip.

Pedro Strop (2-1) went two innings for the win despite giving up a tying homer to Howie Kendrick in the eighth. Closer Jim Johnson worked around a one-out double for his seventh save in as many chances.

The Angels wasted another strong start by Dan Haren and had their five-game home winning streak against the Orioles snapped.

LaTroy Hawkins (0-1) surrendered Markakis' winning hit after closer Jordan Walden had pitched a scoreless ninth.

Haren pitched seven scoreless innings before surrendering one-out singles to Matt Wieters and Robert Andino in the eighth. Endy Chavez greeted reliever Scott Downs with a single to load the bases before Markakis singled to left to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs.

Kendrick answered in the bottom of inning with a solo blast off Strop, his fourth RBI of the series despite sitting out Saturday's game.

Taiwanese left-hander Wei-Yin Chen turned in a strong outing for Baltimore, giving up one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings.
