Orioles ride into first place with 4-2 win over Angels

Albert Suárez did it again. The Orioles bullpen nearly did it again too. When it all came down to the end, the Angels had the winning run already on base but two men out, and Mike Trout at the plate to face Craig Kimbrel. As one likely future Hall of Famer squared off against another, Kimbrel fooled Trout by pumping strikes at the top of the zone.

A called third strike ended the game and the Orioles took a 4-2 win in the opener against Los Angeles. With the win, the Orioles also took first place in the AL East, thanks to the Yankees losing to the Athletics earlier on Monday.
