It often doesn't matter where the pitch is to Vladimir Guerrero. If it's outside, he extends his arms and takes the ball the other way. If it's low, he goes down and gets it. And if it's anywhere near the plate, he usually crushes it.

The Orioles found that out the hard way yesterday as Guerrero hit two bases-empty home runs and an RBI single to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 9-3 victory over the Orioles, breaking their three-game winning streak before a holiday crowd of 19,904 at Camden Yards.
