Angels update

The Angels (6-7) have not won since scoring seven runs in the ninth inning Friday night and going on to defeat Toronto, 14-13, in 10 innings to equal the biggest comeback in franchise history. The Angels have been led by DH Chili Davis (.388, 3 HRs, 12 RBIs). Bo Jackson, platooning in left field with Dwight Smith, is batting .233 with two home runs and seven RBIs. In two starts, rookie left-hander Anderson, who is replacing Mark Langston (arthroscopic elbow surgery) in the rotation, has yielded nine hits in 14 1/3 innings. Tim Salmon, last year's AL Rookie of the Year, hit four home runs against the Orioles in 1993.

Orioles update

The Orioles (7-4) open an eight-game homestand tonight, coming off a 4-2 road trip in which they won series against Detroit and Texas. Harold Baines (.400) and Rafael Palmeiro (.318) have been the Orioles' hottest hitters. The Orioles are averaging more than five runs even though the top of the order is off to a slow start. Leadoff hitter Brady Anderson is hitting .205 with 14 strikeouts in 44 at-bats. No. 2 hitter Mike Devereaux is batting .159 with 16 strikeouts in 44 at-bats, but he made solid contact in each at-bat Sunday night, showing signs of breaking out. Jamie Moyer looks to become the first starter other than staff co-aces Mussina and Ben McDonald to win a game.
